Apologies for the belated post, but we wanted to remind everyone that Language and Rhetorical Rhetorical Studies is again delighted to sponsor summer reading groups! We buy the book; you provide the camaraderie and endless insights into an academic work you’ve always wanted to (and know you should) read. This year, we will sponsor 3-4 groups of 3-4 people and one book per group. We have limited funding this year and expect that book group funding will be competitive.
If you are interested in participating, please send a proposal for a book related to language and/or rhetoric (name, author, and a brief description), the names of your group members, and how your proposed book fits with LangRhet’s goals and themes to Jathan Day (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday, May 9. Decisions will be sent out by May 16.
If your group is approved, you will responsible for scheduling and holding meetings for your text and providing LangRhet with an in-progress summary of your group’s activities by July 6th. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
