Call for Proposals: Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition/ Conference on College Composition and Communication Event 2023

Conference Panel Title: Emerging Feminist Scholars: Listening and Learning from Graduate Student Researchers

The Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition invites proposals for the keynote panel event at their Wednesday evening meeting at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in 2023. This panel will showcase emerging scholars and their new work, specially featuring feminist researchers at the prospectus or dissertation stage who are conducting cutting-edge research in our discipline.

Successful proposals will take up intersectional feminist concerns, as this panel will highlight rhetorical scholarship that explores the multiple and interacting systems of power that both marginalize and privilege. More particularly, selected panelists will engage questions of gendered expression and experience while investigating those systems of power that complicate such gendered expressions and experiences. Borrowing from Brittany Cooper, ​we invite ​intersectional work that “challenges the ever-shifting machinations of systems that seek to re-instantiate and reinscribe dominance.”

A committee of four Coalition members will review submissions based on innovativeness of feminist rhetorical research and engagement with intersectional feminism. Four presenters will be selected, and they will give 10-12-minute keynote presentations followed by Q&A. Presenters will also be invited to workshop their presentations prior to CCCC 2023.

Submission Criteria:

  • Submit a 250-word presentation abstract that includes how this presentation builds from the dissertation project along with a c.v.
  • Send submissions to Jess Enoch at;
    • Title your email: CFSHRC CCCC 2023 Panel Submission: [LAST NAME]
  • Submit proposals by July 15, 2022
