Dreaming, Imagination, and Non-Discursive Rhetoric
Rhetoric Society of America Biennial Conference
May 26-29, 2006
Memphis, Tennessee

The imagination, according to Aristotle, provides the same kind of sensory
information to our consciousness during dreaming as our actual senses
provide to our consciousness during wakeful periods (459a1 15-22). If it is
the case that our knowledge-making derives from sense-perception, then it
must also be the case that the texts we imagine during the dream state are
also capable of producing knowledge. But what is this knowledge? And what
kind of text is this?

A CALL FOR PAPERS (Deadline –September 1, 2005; journal issue)

Much of contemporary academic debate is focused on the difficulty in
representing trauma, as well as the undeniable need to find a way to
communicate such experience. Scholars such as Cathy Caruth have noted that
the traumatized individual is unable to witness him or herself at the moment
of violent breach. Therefore, traumatic experience cannot be easily
understood, and yet, paradoxically, it must be articulated. Present day
concerns seem to focus in on the problematic representation of horrific
experiences such as slavery, the Holocaust, and the attack of September 11,
2001.
