At the close of the twentieth century, the proliferation of networked digital technologies has led a number of critics to call into question the future of reading. However, in the last several years it has become increasingly clear that reading continues to be an important aspect of our cultural practice, even as it manifests itself in multiple forms. This panel invites papers that concern themselves with both the history and the future of reading.

This panel seeks papers that discuss different methods and effects of encountering language in its varying forms. These “varying forms” can be understood as different languages, in a translation studies context; as aural/oral language or visual/written language in an aesthetic, literary, or art historical context; or as a series of codes or coded information, as in a linguistic anthropology or computer studies context.

In Rhetorical Power, rhetorical and literary theorist Steven Mailloux defines rhetoric as “the political effectivity of trope and argument in culture” (xii). Crucially, this definition resists the not uncommon understandings of rhetoric as mere “eloquence,” as florid, deceptive language, or as “persuasive discourse,” instead foregrounding rhetoric as a methodology or lens for identifying the roles of historical and socio-political power relations in shaping how and why certain tropes, arguments, and language use prove effective in the first place. Similarly, Terry Eagleton, in Literary Theory: An Introduction, argues that there is no such thing as either an apolitical aesthetic or mode of criticism, but rhetoric can function as a kind of meta-theory with an extensive capacity for self-reflexivity.

In general, this cfp seeks papers that explore various types of encounters between rhetoric and poetics.
