Feminist Challenges or Feminist Rhetorics?: Locations, Scholarship, and Discourse

Hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato
October 12-15, 2011

Proposals due: April 25, 2011

This year's theme invites interested scholars and community members to join the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition (CWSHRC) in looking through a feminist lens at the intersections between past, present, and future social challenges and related rhetorics. Questions to consider for panels, roundtables, and individual presentations include:

  • What are the discourses of feminism? Where are they located?
  • Where do we find feminist rhetorics? How do we understand the function of feminist rhetoric?
  • What does feminist scholarship look like in the 21st century?
  • How has interdisciplinarity had an impact on the feminist agenda?
  • What is the politic of feminist scholarship?
  • How do we understand the politics of inclusion in 21st-century feminism?
  • How does feminist inquiry have an impact on our understanding of scholarship?
  • What are the challenges faced by feminists inside and outside of the academy?
To learn more, visit http://tinyurl.com/FemRhet2011, come to the CWSHRC meeting on Wednesday, April 6 from 6-8pm at the CCCC in Atlanta, or email Kirsti Cole at kirsti [dot] cole [at] mnsu [dot] edu.

Proposals are due April 25, 2011. Acceptance will be sent out no later than May 15, 2011.
