CSSR President’s message
Welcome to the Canadian Society of Rhetoric (CSSR), a scholarly society dedicated to the study of rhetoric in the broadest possible terms. We welcome scholars from a wide range of disciplines: music, communications, literature, history, medieval and renaissance studies, political science, philosophy, etc… The society provides a forum of exchange for everything rhetorical, and we publish an on-line biennial journal (Rhetor) of peer-reviewed rhetoric scholarship.
