19th Biennial Conference of the Rhetoric Society of America
Portland, OR May 21 - May 24, 2020
The theme of the RSA 2020 biennial conference, “Rhetoric / Hospitality,” asks us to contemplate hospitality as a gesture of generous reception of the other, one that invites inclusive rhetorical practices and relations, but also as a gesture of sovereign power that asserts the right to welcome or to refuse the other.
