Co-sponsored with the Division on Teaching of Writing.

Although "style" was one of the five canon's of ancient rhetoric and a key part of rhetorical pedagogy, today many scholars worry that the field has paid less attention to this canon than it might. Drawing on ancient and/or contemporary rhetorical theories, papers should consider how to reinvigorate the study and teaching of style in the field of rhetoric and composition.
