Panel Proposal: Rhetoric and Contemporary Dialectical Theory (RSA 2008)
I am soliciting participants for a panel to be proposed for the 2008 Rhetoric Society of America Conference in Seattle, WA (http://www.rhetoricsociety.org/). I invitePreliminary inquiries and proposals of 150 to 250 words that present or are informed by contemporary recuperations of dialectical and/or specifically Hegelian theory—-such as in the work of Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou, and Fredric Jameson—-particularly as they relate to themes or issues in rhetorical studies where an arguably Platonic conception of that thought predominates. Proposals that incorporate the conference's theme ("The Responsibilities of Rhetoric") are especially welcome.
Please send a proposal or preliminary inquiry to jarice [at] ufl [dot] edu by Sept. 1.
