Welcome to H-Rhetor, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-Rhetor is a network for scholars and teachers of the history of rhetoric, writing, and communication.
Announcing a new online resource, Open Media Scholarship:
The nonprofit site is dedicated to promoting open access (OA) in media, communication, and film scholarship and teaching. The site features OA journals, books, and resources, along with searches for OA articles and datasets. The rationale for Open Media Scholarship is that media scholars, for a variety of reasons, should be at the forefront of the OA movement.
There are three ways to stay updated about new content:
Writing as a Way of Being Human
Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning
2017 Summer Conference
YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park, CO
June 22-25, 2017
PROPOSAL DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 1, 2017
What are some new directions in the history of rhetoric? What avenues of rhetorical history remain unexplored or underexplored? What new methodologies or theories should historians of rhetoric make special use of? This panel solicits papers that address these and related questions, and particularly papers that address how new directions in the history of rhetoric speak to the relevance of rhetorical studies. This is a proposed ASHR session for NCA 2017, which will be held in Dallas on November 16-19, 2017.
