Call for Submissions

A Call for Papers from the American Society for the History of Rhetoric

for the 113th Annual ECA Convention

Philadelphia, PA: April 7 to April 9, 2022

The American Society for the History of Rhetoric invites completed papers and panel or roundtable proposals from scholars who take a historical approach to the study of rhetoric. We welcome submissions on all historical aspects of rhetoric, in all historical periods, and with reference to all intellectual, national, and cultural communities.  Our scope includes, but is not limited to, historical approaches to rhetorical theory, discourse, criticism, pedagogy, and media studies. 

•     Individual submissions of complete competitive papers should include two separate attachments: 

1) A title page with the names, email addresses, institutional affiliations of all authors and the title of the paper.

2) A manuscript that includes:
(a) a 200-450 word abstract and the title of the paper on the first page, and
(b) a maximum of 25-pages (double-spaced, 11 or 12 point font) of text, excluding references and tables. There should be no information in the paper that identifies the author(s) (beyond that which appears on the separate title page). Please remove any identifiers, such as the author’s name, from the paper and electronic file from the header or on the file label. Generally follow MLA format guidelines. Repeat a shortened version of the title in the header of every page.  Number your pages.

ALL SUBMISSIONS! Include a Statement of Professional Responsibility! When submitting a paper or proposal acknowledge the following statement in Attendee Interactive:
