Call For Papers

SAMLA Visual Rhetoric Regular Session CFP

The South Atlantic Modern Language Association’s (SAMLA) focus this year is Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds, and this Call for Papers invites submissions that explore and examine the ways that images are used to make meaning in print and online.

In keeping with the rhetorical focus of this session, we are interested in papers that inquire how visual artifacts make meaning by persuading using one or more of Aristotle’s appeals: ethos, logos, and/or pathos.

Papers may examine how visuals persuade in print, digital, and networked worlds through moving images such as videos and movies, artwork, static online or printed images, and video games.

The Visual Rhetoric session is a regular session of SAMLA, and we invite submissions that engage with the theme of this year's conference as well as engaging with other issues and topics that represent the field of visual rhetoric.

Please send abstracts of 500 words or less to the session’s chair, Shawn Apostel,, no later than May 24, 2013, and include with your abstract any audio / visual needs you have. All presenters must be members of SAMLA at the time of presentation. Please be sure to include your contact information and any other special needs you may have.

SAMLA will be held in Atlanta, GA on November 8-10, 2013. For more information about the conference, visit
