Eleventh Biennial Conference
Saskatoon, Canada, 22-26 July 1997

The Greco-Roman Rhetorical Tradition: Alterations, Adaptations, Alternatives

"The Greco-Roman Rhetorical Tradition: Alterations, Adaptations, Alternatives" will be the theme of the Eleventh Biennial conference of the International Society of the History of Rhetoric at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada, 22-26 July, 1997.

The focus on "Alterations" and "Adaptations" recognizes that the art of rhetoric has emerged and changed with the societies that have produced the Greco-Roman tradition of discourse or adapted it to new institutional and cultural conditions and uses throughout its history. The focus on "Alternatives" acknowledges other discourses that have challenged and continue to challenge the Greco-Roman tradition wherever Europeans have transplanted it throughout the world.

Proposals for 20-minute papers in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish should be submitted by 9 February 1996 to the ISHA President. Please contact her for a form:
