Call for Papers, Panels, and Abstracts
18th Biennial NCA/AFA Conference on Argumentation, 2013
The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird, Alta, UT, August 1-4, 2013.

Theme: Disturbing Argument


…as in argument that disturbs, contains disturbing words or images, or is about disturbing topics; as in argument that disturbs relationships of power; as in theories and approaches that disturb traditional approaches to  argument. So, “disturbing” is quite polysemous and polyvalent (if not wholeheartedly equivocal).

All submissions about some aspect of argumentation are welcome and encouraged, but preference will be given to those addressing the conference theme.

Submission Process: Please submit electronic versions of completed papers, panel proposals, or extended abstracts to the Conference Program Planner, Catherine H. Palczewski at the Alta submission website. To access the submission site, go to http://www.altaconference.org and click on the 2013 Conference link.

Deadline for Submissions: Friday, March 1, 2013

Submission Format:  The Alta Conference invites completed papers, panel proposals, and paper abstracts written from any of the methodological approaches to argumentation. A submission’s approach to argumentation may be applied, critical, cross-disciplinary, empirical, interpretive, pedagogical, philosophical, and/or theoretical. We also welcome studies
of arguments in particular domains (e.g., legal, political, interpersonal, scientific, etc.) and forms (e.g., verbal, visual, etc.). (more…)
