>Call For Proposals: "Agency in the Margins: the History of Outsider
>Rhetoric"
>
>Edited by Anne Meade Stockdell-Giesler, Ph.D.
>
>
>Seeking abstracts and proposals (up to 500 words) for essays concerned
>with histories, traditions, or patterns of rhetoric taking place in the
>margins of traditional disciplinary practice.  One area of rhetorical
>theory and practice that is underdeveloped is the study of the means of
>persuasion available to the unempowered-those outside access to the polis,
>the academy, the political arena.  People living outside of access to the
>traditional sites for rhetorical participation do occasionally find access
>there, but always as outsiders still.  From Aspasia onward, much of the
>research into marginal figures that took place in the 1980s and 1990s
>focused on the occasional minority figure who made his or her way into the
>public sphere using traditional academic rhetoric. We have not much
>considered the rhetorical power of those who do not have social or
>institutional identities despite their contributions in social and
>workplace structures. This work will consider where outsiders to social,
>political, academic, and economic power did and do participate, despite
>this lack of representation in public life. Essays should address the
>concept of "outsider rhetoric," or the study of how people in the margins
>actively, collaboratively, deliberately practice rhetoric with a sense of
>political and social purpose, throughout the history of the discipline.
