I am soliciting participants for a panel to be proposed for the 2008
Rhetoric Society of America Conference in Seattle, WA
(http://www.rhetoricsociety.org/). I invite preliminary inquiries and
proposals of 150 to 250 words that present or are informed by contemporary
recuperations of dialectical and/or specifically Hegelian theory--such as
in the work of Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou, and Fredric
Jameson--particularly as they relate to themes or issues in rhetorical
studies where an arguably Platonic conception of that thought predominates.
Proposals that incorporate the conference's theme ("The Responsibilities of
Rhetoric") could be especially valuable.
