    Language and Rhetorical Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is an interdisciplinary graduate student organization that focuses on the intersection of language and rhetoric. We aim to capture the interest and attention of those within disciplines that typically have been associated with these areas of study, such as Linguistics, English Language and Literature, and English Education. We also seek to attract participants from a range of other disciplines that may work with more expansive understandings of language and rhetoric. The goal of this group is to discuss the ways that linguistic and rhetorical choices permeate our lives.
