ASHR Symposia

ASHR symposia date back to 1986, when scholars discussed “Tradition and Innovation in the History of Rhetoric.”  Since then topics have included “The Principle of Kairos in the History of Rhetoric,” “Rhetoric and Emotion,” “Rhetoric and Style,” “Rhetoric and Aesthetics,” “Performance in the History of Rhetoric,” “Rhetoric and Revolution,” and “Rhetoric and Its Masses.” For a complete list of past symposia, click here.
