"RHETORIC & KAIROS"
"The term kairos has a rich and varied history, but generally refers to the way a given context for communication both calls for and constrains one's speech. Thus, sensitive to kairos, a speaker or writer takes into account the contingencies of a given place and time, and considers the opportunities within this specific context for words to be effective and appropriate to that moment." - quoted courtesy of Silva Rhetoricae (rhetoric.byu.edu)
Rhetoric Symposium is now accepting proposals for papers and panels
dealing with contemporary issues of kairos, which we define
broadly to incorporate a wide variety of research interests.
