We work to create community and provide a forum for LSU students, faculty, and other interested persons to gather as rhetoricians and host rhetoric-related events.
While housed in the Department of Communication Studies at LSU, our chapter is committed to promoting the inter- and trans-disciplinary study of rhetoric at our institution, in our state, across the Gulf Coast region, and through out national and international spaces.
We also disseminate resources for rhetoric, cultural, and communication studies students, scholars, and teachers.
We are a local chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America at Louisiana State University.
