Standing Session--Rhetoric and Composition

This session welcomes all papers addressing the fields of composition and rhetoric from pedagogical, practical, and theoretical perspectives.


In addition, we encourage papers that address the conference theme, “City of God, City of Destruction,” in ways that connect the rhetoric/composition field with topics or practices examining current political, religious, and social divides.

Possible areas of interest include debates, classroom strategies, and rhetorical approaches to:

  • the perceived widening of the rural/urban split in the U.S.
  • religious influence in public life—political, social, and educational; ecology
  • sustainability—perhaps gaining apocalyptic meaning with recent climate disasters.
