Rhetoric Society of America


The SU Rhetoric Society of America Chapter brings together scholars from the Composition & Cultural Rhetoric program and Communication & Rhetorical Studies department. This cross-disciplinary relationship allows us to expand our networks, engage different approaches to rhetoric scholarship, and foster a diverse and active community. We meet twice each semester for research colloquia, professional development sessions, and conversation.

RSA is the foremost (and fast growing) national organization for rhetorical scholarship that joins work on rhetoric being done in Rhetoric & Composition, Communication Studies, and English. Its influential biennial conference meets in even years and the RSA Institute meets during odd years. Our faculty and graduate students frequently attend both events, and a number of faculty from both sponsoring departments have led past Institute workshops.

The student membership fee ($50) is 45% off the regular rate and also includes:

  • a year's subscription to RSQ
  • discounted conference and institute registration rates
  • a 20% discount on rhetoric, communication, and study of language books at Oxford University Press
  • access to all the online organizational resources, including the Rhetoric Jobs directory
