General Call for Papers
SAMLA invites prospective conference participants to submit abstracts to our annual General Call for Papers. The General Call will be used to build programming from accepted abstracts that did not resonate with any of our currently published CFPs.
Abstracts will be reviewed internally, and accepted abstracts will either be placed on an extant panel or combined with other General Call abstracts to create new sessions. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee acceptance and placement, though we will work earnestly and diligently to place all abstracts.
"Vom Eise befreit sind Strom und Bäche/Durch des Frühlings holden, belebenden Blick" - what better time than spring to finish that draft and send it in to us! We are an enthusiastic group of professors, led by an all-female editorial board, publishing a peer-reviewed academic journal. Our interests are in anything "German" from various perspectives. We are especially excited when we receive submissions about literature, culture, and language, including teaching German as a second or foreign language. Articles are published in German and English. Please visit https://dc.cod.edu/gj/ for more information. Happy writing!
This panel welcomes papers that chart recent movements in rhetorical theory—in particular, papers on developments in rhetoric’s connection to materiality, inclusive of broad movements in “new materialism,” “agential realism,” “vitalism,” “object-oriented ontology,” and “object-oriented rhetoric,” and others. Possible questions to be considered: is “agency” uniquely human? Does agency extend into the non- or transhuman domain? To what extent do objects, materials, and environments rhetorically impact human decisions?
