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 (email@example.com) by March 27.

The new president did not show any interest in higher education until the late stage of the campaign. His pick to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos also does not have any background in higher education. In addition to his impulsive and popularist policies that horrify experts, his connivance of white supremacy and anti-intellectualism especially put academe in jeopardy. We have already witnessed unpromising changes on campuses in the U.S. since his appearance for the election. Racial and religious minority groups became targets of hate-motivated incidents. White-supremacist posters and fliers, swastikas, and racial epithets, which were once believed as taboo, cause constant controversies on campus.
