Workshop: 2016

2018 WORKSHOP is coming up

International Rhetoric Workshop 2016

The first workshop was hosted at beautiful Uppsala University between the 17th and the 19th of August 2016. The theme, “Crossing Traditions: Reimagining the Political,” pursues questions of how various traditions of rhetorical theory meet and merge within global rhetorical practices, and how these crossings can change and develop the concept of the political. IRW is designed as an inclusive workshop and the organizers strive to make it possible for young scholars with limited resources to meet others from around the globe and discuss research.
