Background: Each Rhetoric Symposium features four “Priming Speakers” whose remarks are analyzed through immediate direct responses, through group discussions, and through ongoing Research Groups culminating in a parliamentary debate to choose a single Proposition embodying the concepts studied.

The first Symposium in 2012 with 20 participants from seven countries discussed “Rhetoric in the Twenty-First Century.”   Proceedings are in press with Cambridge Scholars Press. A scheduling    problem forced a lull in 2013, but in 2014 there were 17 participants from five continents who took on the subject “Rhetoric in Time and Space.”
