New Directions for Rhetorical Studies in Early Modern Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 1:02pm
Mark Kaethler and Anton Bergstrom / Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Rhetoric and literature obviously have an intricate shared history in early modern studies evidenced by the likes of George Puttenham’s Art of English Poesie (1579) among other manuals and treatises, but studies continue to demonstrate that there is more to be examined at this scholarly intersection. By applying research in cognitive studies, for instance, Raphael Lyne offers a new perspective on Shakespeare’s use of rhetoric, and in a forthcoming piece Michael Ullyot and Adam Bradley employ digital technologies in order to study the applications of rhetorical tropes like gradatio in early modern drama more broadly. This panel seeks to discuss what other innovations or findings are possible with or without novel applications.

In our “post-truth” landscape, fake news and “alternative facts” abound. It can even be difficult getting students to agree on the standards for what qualifies as accurate, verifiable information. However, teaching students to evaluate sources and construct fact-based arguments is both more challenging and more essential than ever before. This is doubly important in the writing classroom where students are still finding their voices and honing their rhetorical and analytical skills. This panel welcomes papers that address this topic from a range of theoretical and/or empirical perspectives. 

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

--successful methods for teaching students to discern opinion-based writing
