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 studied concepts.
The first Symposium was held in 2012, with 23 participants from seven countries discussed 'Rhetoric in the Twenty-First Century'. (A Report on the Symposium was published in the Rhetoric Review, volume 33, issue 3 (2014)). The second Symposium in 2014 included some 18 participants from four continents, who took on the subject of 'Rhetoric in Time and Space'.
