This conference asks us to explore civic discourse and how civic discourse,
feminism(s) and rhetoric(s) interact with, for, and against each other.

 

What is civic discourse? What counts as civic discourse?

How has civic discourse changed over the years for women? For feminism?

How can we expand the definition of civic discourse?

What does it mean to participate in civic discourse in the 21st century?

How do women participate in civic discourse?

How has the internet/electronic discourse affected civic discourse?

How has civic discourse become corporatized?

How has globalization impacted civic discourse?

What does it mean to be a feminist and/or rhetorician participating in civic
discourse?

 

We look forward to reading proposals from a wide variety of disciplines,
including, but not limited to, history, ethics, new media, political
science, social justice, pedagogy, law, literature, art and art theory,
queer theory, international studies, cultural studies, race studies,
economics, environmental studies, science, social activism, communication
studies, technical communication, visual design, philosophy, and
engineering.
