RSA Summer Institute Workshops
22-24 June 2007
Workshops may take many forms, from mini-seminars to the introduction of methods in research or analysis to activist projects to on-going scholarly collaborations to curriculum development. They may be proposed by a single person or a collaborative group.
We see the workshop setting as very open. a place to continue conversations or projects begun in 2005 or elsewhere, to begin new lines of research, to work on writing projects (individually or collaborative), to develop pedagogical strategies or materials, or to generate exciting new approaches to rhetorical studies.

- Rhetoric and Public Memory
- Rhetorics of Second-Wave Feminism
- Rhetoric as Pedagogical Tradition: The Early 20th Century and Oral Communication
- A Rhetorician's Guide to Discourse Analysis
- The Rhetoric of the Scientific Revolution

- Reinventing the Rhetoric of Social Movements
