Rhetoric – Eugene

The University of Oregon hosts “The Promise of Reason: The New Rhetoric After 50 Years,” May 17-20, 2008, in Eugene.

Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca published La Nouvelle Rhétorique: Traité de l’Argumentation in 1958, a work that has since come to represent the revival of rhetoric and its reintegration with philosophy in the twentieth century. The influence of this work is felt in rhetoric, philosophy, jurisprudence, communication studies, critical theory, and the newer disciplines of argumentation and informal reasoning.

The deadline for paper proposals is Sept. 21, 2007.
