This Fall, TCU's Winifred Bryan Horner (WBH) Rhetoric Society is holding most of its meetings at the University Pub near TCU's campus. The casual atmosphere provides a great space for rhetoric and composition faculty and graduate students to discuss current research in the field.
This week, the group discussed Laurie Gries's Kairos article "Mapping Obama Hope: A Data Visualization Project for Visual Rhetorics." Along with Gries's piece, the group spoke to general merits and concerns of digital scholarship and publication.
Next time, the group will meet for a cookie exchange and read Heather Lindenman et al.'s "Revision and Reflection: A Study of (Dis)Connections between Writing Knowledge and Writing Practice."
The Winifred Bryan Horner Rhetoric Society serves as the student chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America at Texas Christian University. In addition to sponsoring events that further rhetorical scholarship at TCU, the WBH Rhetoric Society also supports the Winifred Bryan Horner Reading Library in the TCU Graduate Instructor office. The WBH Rhetoric Society was founded by TCU English graduate students in 2011.
