Composition, Rhetoric, and Popular Culture (11/9/2007; PCA/ACA 3/19-22/2008)

The Composition and Rhetoric Area of the PCA/ACA seeks papers/projects addressing the intersection of Popular Culture with Composition studies and/or Rhetoric, as each of these terms can be most broadly construed. We are interested in popular representations of writing, rhetoric, and instruction in both, as well as the composed or rhetorical nature of culture as expressed in popular artifacts. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Composition and rhetoric in literature
* Composition and rhetoric in film
* Rhetorical analysis of literature, film, popular music
