In the last five years or so, rhetoric and composition scholarship has offered work that brings digital media and bodies to the forefront to shape pedagogical praxis, illuminate cultural practices, and extend composition studies (into writing studies). Yet, much of this scholarship remains focused on the rhetorical construction of embodiment, as indicated by several recent journal special issues: Perspectives and Definitions of Digital Rhetoric (Enculturation 23 2016), Wearable Rhetorics: Bodies, Cities, Collectives (Rhetoric Society Quarterly 46.3 2016), Embodied and Affective Rhetorics (Present Tense 6.1 2016), Embodied Sound (Kairos 21.1 2016), and Sexing Colorlines: Black Sexualities, Popular Culture, and Cultural Production (Poroi 7.2 2011).

Abstract

In today’s economy, the field of composition studies is rapidly changing; partly out of the realities of the academic job market and partly as a result of the desire for high-level writing skills at the undergraduate level. As Magrino and Sorrell (2104) state in their discussion of the influx of graduate assistant in the composition classroom, “due to the demand upon Composition programs to provide courses that prepare undergraduates for authentic modes of discourse that they will encounter in the workplace, the number of undergraduate courses in Composition has risen dramatically, with the field of Business Communication seeing an especially steep spike.”

We invite proposals for the first-ever Symposium on Sound, Rhetoric, and Writing, to be held in the cities of Nashville and Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on Sept. 7 & 8, 2018. From Belmont University’s Gallery of Iconic Guitars to historic recording studios like Ocean Way, from Middle Tennessee State University’s Center for Popular Music to its Department of Recording Industry, these two cities are home to a wealth of sound culture and music history, making them a fitting place for a gathering of sonically inclined rhetoric and writing scholars.
