Feminisms and Rhetorics 2007

I am so there:

Call for Papers

The 2007 Feminism(s) and Rhetoric(s) conference invites proposals on civic discourse, feminisms, and rhetorics. The conference draws its inspiration from the 50th anniversary of the integration of Little Rock’s Central High School, the Clinton Presidential Library, Heifer Project International & the Clinton School for Public Service.

This conference asks us to explore civic discourse and how civic discourse, feminism(s) and rhetoric(s) interact with, for, and against each other.

• What is civic discourse? What counts as civic discourse?
• How has civic discourse changed over the years for women? For feminism?
• What does it mean to participate in civic discourse in the 21st century?
• How do we participate in civic discourse?
• How has the internet/electronic discourse affected civic discourse?
• How has civic discourse become corporatized?
• How has globalization impacted civic discourse?
• What does it mean to be a feminist and/or rhetorician participating in civic discourse?

We look forward to reading proposals from a wide variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to, history, ethics, new media, political science, social justice, pedagogy, law, literature, art and art theory, queer theory, international studies, cultural studies, race studies, economics, environmental studies, science, social activism, communication studies, technical communication, visual design, philosophy, and engineering.

It seems like national academic conferences in my field are hardly ever held in the south. There was CCCC 2004 in San Antonio, but that's it. I'd like to see more conferences in Nashville, Birmingham, or Atlanta, as I'd have a free place to stay.

I'm with you!

I'm equally excited for this conference! And the only conference I've been to in the south was San Antonio also...it's time for location reform!


I'm not there, but I could be

This will probably be my last 4C's for a while--I can't handle the dark cold weather of the northern cities. I would love it if we could meet anywhere south of Mason/ Dixon.
