CALL FOR PAPERS

As we prepare for the 3rd Biennial International Rhetoric Workshop, we warmly invite international PhD students and emerging scholars to come together and consider the myriad ways that our contemporary and established traditions of rhetorical theory and criticism inform global flows of meaning-making.

The IRW is an international workshop that creates space for emerging and early-career rhetorical scholars and critics to participate in an informal setting that facilitates engaging discussion, developing scholarship, and bridging communities. The workshop is structured as a 3-day intensive retreat, which includes keynote speakers, roundtable sessions, and working Pods. This intimate program format of IRW promotes sustained community and conversation not often possible at conventional conferences.

The first organizing committee held its inaugural IRW in 2016 in Uppsala, Sweden. Motivated by the enormous success of the 2016 gathering, IRW organizers followed up in 2018 with a meeting in Ghent, Belgium. For 2020, we have conscientiously chosen to hold the 2020 workshop in San Luis Potosí, Mexico at El Colegio de San Luis, in order to gather academics, scholars, and activists who are thinking about language and communication as we stay critical of its limits and consequences. In alignment with this purpose, the working languages in 2020 will be English and Spanish with the aid of translation software and technology.

Proposals that broadly speak to the conference theme are encouraged but certainly not required. We encourage a wide range of topics and approaches, as we believe that this can and will enhance the discussion and workshop experience. In all, we invite you to participate in the 3rd IRW and look forward to reading the many exciting proposals that we hope this theme will inspire.
