Feminisms and Rhetorics 2013


Submitted by John W. Pell on September 26, 2013 - 11:29am


Yesterday the 2013 Feminisms and Rhetorics began on the campus of Stanford University. This conference is one of the events I look forward to each, uh, every other year. And, as in years past, this conference is filled with incredible speakers, and thoughtful panels, which work together to create an inviting and stimulating intellectual environment. I will post next week on some of the sessions I attended and point to the work of scholars that are making an impact in the field of rhetoric and feminist studies.

If you are interested in the conference, I have included the link below.
