Welcome to the website of the Rhetoric Society of America and Greetings from Gregory Clark, President of RSA!

RSA welcomes scholars, teachers, and students of rhetoric in all of its manifestations. RSA’s purpose is to support and advance the work of people who study rhetoric in a variety of disciplinary contexts.

The Rhetoric Society of America represents a large and growing community of scholars, teachers and students interested in the study of rhetoric. RSA embraces a broad conception of rhetoric which includes spoken, written, visual and material texts circulating in a wide variety of situations ranging from the public to the private and from face-to-face to digital, within historical and contemporary social, political, and cultural contexts including race, gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity among others.
