Geometries of Rhetoric
Call for Papers
Special issue of the Nexus Network Journal
Fall 2009
Guest editor, Robert Kirkbride, Ph.D.

Humans apprehend and transform the world through the description of its
qualities and delineation of its quantities. Although these modes of
analysis and expression are often placed in contrast to one another, for
example as the verbal and mathematical arts, products of human ingenuity
literally and figuratively embody a weave of alphanumerics. Mythic
parables, geometric proofs, memory arts, logarithms, buildings and cities
have emerged from the interplay of measure and explication. This call for
papers seeks past, present and potential examples of the combination and
permutation of “geometries of rhetoric” as demonstrated through the
discipline of architecture.

Please send a 500 word abstract and a brief bio or CV to Robert Kirkbride

Founded in 1999, the Nexus Network Journal (NNJ) is a peer-reviewed journal
for researchers, professionals and students engaged in the study of the
application of mathematical principles to architectural design. Its goal
is to present the broadest possible consideration of all aspects of the
relationships between architecture and mathematics, including landscape
architecture and urban design.
