Annual Digital Symposium

The Digital Studio hosts an annual event called the Digital Symposium that highlights some of the digital scholarship, teaching, and production in the department and beyond. Each year the program curators organized an open house and publishes a website to house the selected projects for the year.


Speaker Series

Each year the Rhetoric and Composition hosts at least two visiting scholars, who come to campus to interact with the faculty and graduate students, participate in a variety of activities sessions, and present some of their recent scholarly activity. This time each semester is important for graduate students and faculty to network and interact with leading scholars in the field. In addition to the external speakers, FSU faculty will often present from their work following a sabbatical or research leave in order to share their newest scholarship with the local community. If the schedule allows, these speakers are interviewed by select graduate students: many of these transcripts are linked below. Since around 2012, the Rhetoric and Composition Program Assistant has designed a flier for the speakers, which you can see by clicking on the scholars below who have contributed to our intellectual community.
