Seeking a third (and maybe fourth) panelist.

The following is a brief description of the panel:

Because of recent scholarship in anthropology, psychology, and rhetoric, emotion has become widely understood not as innate or universal—but embodied and performative. Recent scholarship in composition has begun to consider if and how emotion is acknowledged, defined, and performed in composition classrooms. This panel hopes to add to this discussion both theoretically and practically by looking at the ethical and pedagogical implications of incorporating a study of emotion into composition courses and by proposing ways in which a rhetoric of emotion can be utilized and scrutinized in the classroom.

If you are (or will be) doing work that would fit on this panel, please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words by May 2.
