Emerson as Orator and Rhetor
This panel examines Emerson in his oratorical and rhetorical milieu. We welcome papers that consider the relationship between Emerson and rhetorical studies broadly considered, but we are especially interested in papers that highlight Emerson's career as lecturer, that consider his work in the context of rhetorical history, and that investigate his connections to oratorical culture. We welcome new readings of Emerson in light of rhetorical theory, as well as presentations that consider his work in the context of various intellectual traditions, including the study of eloquence, elocution, oratory, homiletics, religious rhetoric, the rhetorical tradition, discourse theory, and speech act theory.
Call for Papers
We invite essays for an upcoming collection that utilize transnational approaches to theorize city space. Accepted essays will offer literary and cultural analyses that encourage us to think of cities, in all of their complexity, as sites of transnational, transactional engagement. In taking this approach, we hope to demonstrate how cities, which are increasingly extending and challenging boundaries of place, provide sites for complicating our understandings of citizenship, nationality, and the nation.
