We are requesting papers for a concurrent session on "The Rhetoric of Film as Public Work" for CCCC in Las Vegas, Nevada 16-19 March 2013. Submissions should be consistent with the conference theme, "The Public Work of Composition," and should address the medium of film from a rhetorical perspective. In particular, papers can explore how filmic rhetoric addresses social issues and/or intersects with critical pedagogy. If films foster Burkean identification, as David Blakesley and others point out, where does that identification lead? How do films construct publics & counterpublics? How can we use film in the critical classroom?

Please send inquiries or 250-word proposals to Shannon Madden at s.madden@ou.edu by 22 April 2012.
