Rhetoric After Identification

Edited by David R. Gruber (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) & Jason Kalin (DePaul University)

 

Rhetorical identification seeks a common ground of existence in which divided individuals can mediate their differences. Perhaps, for this reason, either explicitly or implicitly, identification has become a commonplace of rhetorical theory and criticism. As Diane Davis (2010) writes, “Identification is not simply rhetoric’s most fundamental aim; it’s also and therefore rhetorical theory’s most fundamental problem” (p. 33). Any rhetoric, it seems, must pass through rhetorical identification.

Put simply, we invite you to join us as we revisit region.

[EXTENDED] Poison in Popular Culture: Representations, Aesthetics, and Meanings

updated: 
Tuesday, November 7, 2023 - 2:46am
Lorna Piatti-Farnell, Auckland University of Technology
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 12, 2023

From natural to synthetic, from accidental to administered, poison is entangled with our human history, and its presence has a lot to say about not only our customs and laws, but also our ways of storytelling. Poison likes to adapt itself to situation: the definition of what poison even ‘is’ changes according to time and place, and to the cultural groups and sub-groups that are being consulted. Poison is malleable, mutating, and culturally slippery.  In its ability to conquer the imagination, poison is a crafty narrative weaver. From Shakespeare’s plays to Flaubert’s Madame Bovary and Eco’s The Name of the Rose, from iconic cinematic examples such The Princess Bride to global phenomena such as J.K.
