UPDATE: Everyday Ethos: Conference on College Composition and Communication, March 13-16, 2012

Susanna Engbers

The theme for the CCCC 2013 conference is "The Public Work of Composition," with particular attention to basic writers. An interest in writing as a public work naturally invites consideration of the moral questions inherent in writing for a public audience. (e.g., What is my relationship to my readers? By what means should I persuade? And so on.) The rhetorical concept of ethos should be a natural part of this discussion, given that a rich understanding of ethos leads writers to reflect on the manifestation of their identity in public discourse and the related ethical questions that such presentation entails—among them the age-old question of whether an author must be a "good man," vir bonus, and by what means that goodness may be measured.
