Welcome to the website of the Rhetoric Society of America
RSA is the umbrella organization for scholars and teachers in every discipline who are interested in rhetoric, the art of effective communication.
The Rhetoric Society of America represents a large and growing community of scholars, teachers and students interested in the study of rhetoric. RSA embraces a broad conception of rhetoric which includes spoken, written, visual and material texts circulating in a wide variety of situations ranging from the public to the private and from face-to-face to digital, within historical and contemporary social, political, and cultural contexts including race, gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity among others.Read more »
In 2015, the program will place 22 recent humanities PhDs in two-year positions at partnering nonprofits and government agencies, where the fellows will participate in the core work of these organizations while benefitting from professional mentoring and career development opportunities.
RSA annually offers $3000 to Special Event Awards. Candidates for this award must be Student Chapters with RSA and have an event planned for the spring semester.
