Greetings rhetoricians!

We hope you all have had a wonderful and relaxing winter break! The RSRG is thrilled to announce our first event of the semester: a reading group meeting with Dr. Richard Graff from the University of Minnesota.

The RSRG will get the chance to meet with Dr. Graff on Wednesday, January 30 from 11:30am-1pm in Lincoln Hall Room 4007. Dr. Graff has requested that we read a few articles in preparation for the discussion (see below).

Linked below is a word document which sets up each of the readings with some thoughts from Dr. Graff. It also presents a few links to websites of interest. Finally, we have also linked to PDFs of the readings Dr. Graff provided.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at our first meeting on January 30th!

As always, please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback.

Hello rhetorical scholars:

Instead of trying to pull together a hasty RSRG before finals, we’ve agreed to push that to next semester.

However, we have some very exciting events in the works for next semester, including:

Late-January 2013: Lunchtime RSRG meeting with Richard Graff 
February 2013: A Writing Studies-curated RSRG
March 2013: Graduate Lyceum
April 2013: Potential RSRG event with Dr. Christa Olson

Check this space and your inbox for more details and updates as plans are solidified. We’re looking forward to hitting the ground running next semester.

We hope you all have a smooth end of the semester, an enjoyable Winter Break, and a Happy New Year!

Cheers,

Rohini Singh
