Rhetoric Society of America Conference - Popular Genres Panel - June 7, 2013 Deadline
I plan on submitting a panel proposal to the Rhetoric Society conference coming up in May 2014. I would like to find 2-3 other presenters for my panel. You should be an assistant+ professor at a college or university in the US. I am currently finishing a book for McFarland called "Formulaic Writing within Genres" on currently popular literary genres. I would like to create a panel on the generic structure of currently popular fiction genres (primarily in the novel). Please familiarize yourself with the Rhetoric Society prior to sending a query - they are interested in close rhetorical textual studies (genre, tone, characters, etc.). If you are interested, please email a couple of sentences on the topic that you would like to present on, and a short paragraph bio with your credentials. The proposals are due on July 1, 2013, so I need to receive all queries by June 7, 2013 - so I'll have enough time to pull the panel together. Participants will also have a chance to publish their papers in the tri-annual Pennsylvania Literary Journal, now in its 5th volume. Email queries to firstname.lastname@example.org, to the attention of Anna Faktorovich, Ph.D., Director, Anaphora Literary Press, www.anaphoraliterary.com.
