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 (brandon.katzir@gmail.com) by March 27.
