Rhetorics and Ethics of the Decision (9/10/07; RSA 2008)

I am seeking submissions for a panel to be proposed for the 2008
Rhetoric Society of America Conference in Seattle, WA
( I’d like to invite preliminary
proposals (no more than 250 words) that present rhetorical or ethical
approaches to the decision. The “decision,” here, is conceived broadly,
and any ethical, rhetorical, or theoretical aspect you wish to engage is
welcome. Ideally, the completed panel will contribute in some way to the
conference theme “The Responsibilities of Rhetoric.” Possibilities
include (but are not limited to):

Rhetorical/ethical examination of legal decisions,
The effects of decision making on rhetorical subjectivity,
The role of the decision in a particular vein (or thinker) of rhetorical
theory (classical to modern),
Analyses of attempts to affect decision making,
Poststructuralist ethics and the decision.

Please submit proposals and inquiries to Brooke Rollins
( by September 10.
