Editors seek essays for an anthology in Parlor Press’s series on visual
rhetoric. Proposals should address the pedagogical concerns of teachers of
rhetoric, professional communication, composition, and/or cultural studies.

The anthology will explore visual rhetoric as it influences the business,
artistic, social, and political sectors of public and personal life and will
offer teachers of composition specific means—for instance, through
assignments and activities—of using visual texts in the teaching of
culturally infused rhetoric. We consider the volume important because
curricula in the humanities and social sciences have increased their
emphasis on visual rhetoric and because many teachers are unfamiliar with
pedagogical approaches constructed around visual images.

Essays on visuals in photography, both commercial and art; fine art,
including painting and sculpture; architecture; graphic design; political
campaigns; institutional documents; hypertext; and journalistic publications
are welcome, as are papers addressing other relevant topics within a
pedagogical framework. Deadline for 250-400 word abstracts: December 15,
2003. Completed essays due Apri1 15, 2004. Please contact editors Carol
