Rhetoric Society of America ... RSA14 Edited Volume Arriving Soon!
Dear RSA Friends,

I hope you are all ready and prepared for the coming Fall semester. I know that for many of us Fall brings with it the fun and excitement of seeing old colleagues and meeting new ones as well as those fascinating first moments with a new set of students. Of course, it is also a time for polishing up those summer research projects, looming deadlines, and meetings, meetings, meetings.

Book announcement: Democracy, Deliberation, and Education

Democracy, Deliberation, and Education, by Robert Asen, is now available from the Penn State Press.

From the publisher: "The local school board is one of America’s enduring venues of lay democracy at work. In Democracy, Deliberation, and Education, Robert Asen takes the pulse of this democratic exemplar through an in-depth study of three local school boards in Wisconsin. In so doing, Asen identifies the broader democratic ideal in the most parochial of American settings.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

 

Dialectical Rhetoric By Bruce McComiskey


Submitted by syntaxfactory on June 23, 2015 - 6:29pm


Dialectical Rhetoric
By Bruce McComiskey

"What the author proposes here is not found anywhere else, and his development of a third dialectic--that is, an entirely new model for understanding dialectic--well, this is not mere appropriation; this is theory making."
---Frank Farmer, University of Kansas, author of
After the Public Turn and Saying and Silence

In Dialectical Rhetoric, Bruce McComiskey argues that the historical conflict between rhetoric and dialectic can be overcome in ways useful to both composition theory and the composition classroom.
