Western States Rhetoric and Literacy Conference 2015

Date & Time: 
Friday-Saturday, Oct. 30-31
Location: 
Exact locations TBA; ASU
Campus: 
Tempe campus

The Department of English at ASU hosts the 2015 Western States Rhetoric and Literacy Conference themed "Rhetorics and Literacies in Motion."

Social, geographic, economic, disciplinary, cultural, and ecological realms (to name but a few) are in flux, influenced and shaped by events in the global arena from geopolitics and insurgencies to climate change and epidemics. More locally and regionally, such issues as institutional dependence on contingent educators, economic cutbacks, and shifts in education policies and practices impact on the professional and social futures of students and faculty. This year’s theme invites proposals on kin─ôsis in theories and practices of rhetoric and literacy, that is, the movement and activities of knowledge making, knowledge distribution, and knowledge disruption.
