Carolina Rhetoric, 2018
Rhetorics & (Counter) Publics
Feb 09-10 // Clemson University
- How are 21st-Century rhetorics poised to engage public ideas?
- What are the roles of academics in counter/public sphere(s)?
- How do various communities address issues of difference and dissensus?
This conference asks how rhetorics are employed to participate, engage, and even challenge publics. We are interested in the ways in which counter/publics use rhetorics to enact agendas and facilitate action through collaboration and dissent; included, but not limited to queer/ing publics, disability and difference, digital and material participative spaces, pedagogical applications, and community-based writing.
