Feminisms and Rhetorics Conference Hosts for 2023 and 2025

The Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric is thrilled to announce that Spelman College will be the site for the 2023 Feminisms and Rhetorics Conference! Dr. Michelle Bachelor Robinson and her colleagues at Spelman will host what will surely be an amazing event. The conference theme is “Feminisms and Reckonings: Interrogating Histories and Harms, Implementing Restorative Practices.” The conference will be held in Fall 2023; please keep an eye out for the Call for Proposals!

The Coalition is also excited to announce the site for the 2025 conference: The University of New Hampshire! Dr. Cristy Beemer is heading the host committee for this event. More details will be circulated close to the event.

The Coalition’s Conference Standing Committee, which reviewed site proposals, will support both Dr. Robinson and Dr. Beemer in their efforts to host conferences that are antiracist and inclusive, affordable, accessible, and transparent in their conference planning. The current members of the Conference Committee are Jen Almjeld, Erin Banks-Kirkham, Erica Cirillo-McCarthy, Ruth Osorio, Britt Starr, and Patrick Thomas. Please be in touch with Jess Enoch (jenoch1@umd.edu) regarding opportunities, questions, or concerns.

Thank you to both Dr. Robinson and Dr. Beemer for your efforts in sustaining and supporting our conversations and scholarship. As President of the Coalition, I can’t wait to see you all in Atlanta (and Durham)!
