The graduated annual dues structure makes membership affordable for younger scholars while assuring the sustainability of the organization and its journal into the future through contributions from more established members. We especially encourage long-term supporters of ASHR to become “Sustaining Members.”

Please also consider giving charitable contributions to the organization by contacting an officer, in order to receive a receipt for tax deductions receipts in donating to our 501(c)3.

One year of membership in the society includes subscription to the society’s annual publication, Journal for the History of Rhetoric (with free access online), and notification and registration to all ASHR-sponsored events.

Memberships can be paid via PayPal. Just select the level of your membership below and follow the instructions.
