Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences 2015


Submitted by syntaxfactory on May 31, 2015 - 5:23pm


It is difficult to explain why I love this conference so much. The Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences (http://congress2015.ca/) is the work of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (http://www.ideas-idees.ca/), a federally funded Canadian organization which aggregates dozens of small Canadian scholarly societies to meet together.

For my purposes, I meet with the Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing and the Canadian Society for the Study of Rhetoric.

LiveBlogging CSSR, 3: Rhetoric and Music


Submitted by syntaxfactory on June 3, 2013 - 12:18pm


Two stalwarts in CSSR (as leaders, as scholars, and as engines who both drive the society's workings and strive to sustain its flavor and intellectual direction) are Shannon Purves-Smith and Michael Purves, Trained in musicology and musical performance, they are a rich resource for rhetorical history in the literature of music. Their papers were again magnificent.

Abstracts:
Name: Michael Purves Smith, University of Waterloo
Title: Locating a Continuum of Rhetoric in Song
