Conflict and/or (Be)longing: Thinking with Stories and Images
Venue: School of Arts and Humanities, University of Lisbon, 16-17 November 2017
People not only think about stories; far more consequentially, people think with stories.
Arthur W. Frank, Letting Stories Breathe: A Socio-Narratology, 2010: 47.
A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with the inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.

Discourse around water management underlines both the serious absence and devastating overabundance of water: rising sea levels compete against desertification; hurricanes and floods follow periods of prolonged drought.

What are some new directions in the history of rhetoric? What avenues of rhetorical history remain unexplored or underexplored? What new methodologies or theories should historians of rhetoric make special use of? This panel solicits papers that address these and related questions, and particularly papers that address how new directions in the history of rhetoric speak to the relevance of rhetorical studies. This is a proposed ASHR session for NCA 2017, which will be held in Dallas on November 16-19, 2017. Please send a cv and a 250-word abstract to Brandon Katzir (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 27.
