Call for Proposals 2011
The CSSR invites you to submit proposals for papers to be presented at its annual conference, to be held in conjunction with Congress 2012 at University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. Dates for the CSSR conference will be May 31 – June 2, 2012.
We will feature a special session on Rhetoric and Uncertainty, chaired by Lyn Bennett of Dalhousie University. However, as always, papers concerning more general aspects of rhetoric are welcome (e.g., rhetorical theory; rhetorical criticism; history of rhetoric; rhetoric in popular culture; media communication; discourse analysis; rhetoric of political and social discourse; pedagogy of communication; rhetoric and the media; sociolinguistics; semiotics; professional and technical communication).
Deadline to submit proposals: January 9, 2012.
How to submit a proposal
Proposals (200-300 words) may be submitted in English or French. Proposals should include the title of the paper and indicate clearly the central importance of rhetoric to the inquiry. Work from various disciplines and from across all historical periods is welcome. Proposals that are accepted will be printed in the conference program. Proposals should be mailed or e-mailed to Jeanie Wills ( c/o Graham Centre for the Study of Communication College of Engineering University of Saskatchewan 57 Campus Drive Saskatoon, SK S7N 5A9).
In order to present a paper, scholars must be members of the CSSR, and annual membership dues must be paid before the presentation of the paper. Presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes.
