"VALUE-ADDED": Rhetorical Theory and Criticism Interest Group
/CSCA, e-Newsletter, Volume 1, No. 1, November, 2008.
"VALUE-ADDED" is a new launch initiated at our last business meeting.
Ideas for our new electronic venture include:
solicitations for collaborative research opportunities; recent member publications; idea exchanges on timely/controversial issues; contributions of resources to enrich our critical/creative thinking, writing, teaching, mentoring (internet, publications, individuals, professional organizations, exhibits).
Express your preferences on how we can best configure our new venture. Contribute ideas and information of interest. Let's build a dialog!
I'm thrilled to help kick off the Rhetorical Criticism and Theory newsletter! Welcome! I'm looking forward to the convention in St. Louis and hope to see many of you there. We're hoping this newsletter
can serve as a starting point for connections and conversations. Connecting the rhetorically inclined will hopefully continue, and strengthen, the quality of conference submissions and panel/group discussions. It will also hopefully, keep us engaged and encouraged as we continue our personal research agendas. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas, opportunities, and successes with you all.
