CFP Deadline Approaching:
22nd Penn State Conference on Rhetoric and Composition
Rhetoric and Writing across Language Boundaries
Sunday, July 10–Tuesday, July 12, 2011
The Nittany Lion Inn
State College, Pennsylvania
About the conference
Developments in globalization, new media literacies, and postcolonial perspectives have called attention to the transnational flow of people and texts and to the hybridity of language itself. These developments have made scholars in rhetoric and composition aware of the monolingual assumptions informing their disciplinary discourses and pedagogical practices. With scholars considering such issues, there are calls now to understand the cross-language relations of writers and writing in an effort to reconfigure the discourses and practices of our discipline.
In light of these disciplinary trends, the 22nd Penn State Conference on Rhetoric and Composition will focus on defining a multilingual rhetoric and writing practice. Featured speakers include leading scholars who address multilingualism in their research and scholarship. We invite you to share your reflections and research on this theme.
