Panel description:

This session welcomes papers addressing the fields of composition and rhetoric. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics related to these fields, we are specifically interested in papers that address the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." Papers dealing with the performative role of writing or the ways in which rhetoric constructs and deconstructs identities are particularly appreciated.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
