International Society for the History of Rhetoric

A seminar on "Women and the Rhetorical Tradition" will be organized by Professor Christine Sutherland. Scholars wishing to contribute on this topic should submit proposals directly to her by the deadline of 9 February 1996. Since the Society may publish proceedings of this seminar, participants will be asked to circulate completed papers in the autumn of 1996. Contact:

. The Society will be applying for a modest conference grant to assist the travel of participants who cannot otherwise attend. Graduate students, independent scholars, and other scholars who expect inadequate government/institutional support should enclose with their proposals a brief explanation of their circumstances and a realistic budget. Support subsequently awarded by other sources must be reported immediately to Professor Henderson.

The International Society for the History of Rhetoric promotes the study of both the theory ad practice of rhetoric in all periods and languages and the relationship of rhetoric to poetics, literary theory and criticism, philosophy, politics, religion, law, and other aspects of the cultural context. The Society is not concerned with the furthering of practical rhetorical skills as such.
