INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF RHETORIC
FIFTEENTH BIENNIAL CONFERENCE
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA
JULY 13-17, 2005
The Society calls for papers that address the theory and practice of rhetoric in its historical contexts from the classical period to the present. The Society invites papers on the relations between *Rhetoric and Society*, including politics, religion, law, philosophy, poetics, literary theory and criticism, gender, and media communications. There will be a *Discussion Forum Past/Present* for papers that explore the present relevance of historical rhetoric. The Society particularly welcomes studies of rhetoric in Hispanic America and Asian-Pacific cultures.
Proposals should be submitted for 20-minute presentations delivered in English, French, German, Italian, Latin, or Spanish. Full details are available on the conference website. The deadline for proposals is May 15, 2004.
The biennial conference of ISHR brings together several hundred specialists in the history of rhetoric from 28 countries. This will be the first meeting of the Society in the United States since 1991, and the first meeting of the Society on the West Coast.
