Composition theory has gone through many changes, from an affiliation with historical rhetoric, a shift to process, then post-process, and social consciousness. Technological advances have allowed composition theory to move more solidly into the visual realm, and courses and classrooms have adapted in exciting ways to account for this shift. As a result, both visual and digital rhetorics are more prevalent in college composition than ever before. However, academic writing in higher education, at times, stigmatizes some representations of these rhetorics, which can confuse students about when the rhetorics are acceptable and when they are not.

Survival

Whether my life had been before that sleep

The Heaven which I imagine, or a Hell

Like this harsh world in which I wake to weep,

I know not——

Percy Bysshe Shelley, ‘The Triumph of Life’

 

Living on is not the opposite of living,

just as it is not identical with living——

Jacques Derrida, ‘Living On’

 ErotemaA Conference on Rhetoric and Literature

Karlstad University, Sweden, 14–16 September 2017

Could rhetoric play a more central role in literary studies than it hitherto has? Do both fields stand something to gain by a closer collaboration? Might such a combination of perspectives even be a means to open up rhetoric and literary studies alike to other disciplines, such as media studies, language studies, art history and pedagogy?
