About this Series
The RSA Series in Transdisciplinary Rhetoric is published by the Pennsylvania State University Press in collaboration with The Rhetoric Society of America. Books published in this series consider rhetoric as both a practice and as a theoretical lens through which to engage other fields, and they investigate how rhetoric itself is complicated as a result of this transdisciplinary exchange. They appeal, first, to scholars in communication studies and English or writing, and, second, to at least one other discipline or subject area. These include, but are not limited to, the rhetoric of science; posthumanist rhetorics; animal studies; the relation of rhetoric and law; digital and visual rhetorics; the intersections of rhetoric and the medical sciences; the networks of rhetoric and economics. Books are well written and accessible to a broad range of students and scholars, as well as innovative and rigorously argued, combining theoretical sophistication with smart case analysis.
Submissions should include a 3–5 page proposal outlining the intent of the project, its scope, its relation to other work on the topic, the anticipated audience, and what makes it transdisciplinary, including an explanation of what the project promises to contribute to another discipline (or disciplines) and how this transdisciplinary engagement will complicate rhetoric as a field of inquiry. Please also include 1–2 sample chapters (at least 1 body chapter) and a current C.V.
