Welcome to the Rhetoric Society of Europe

Dear rhetorician,

In Europe, research and teaching in rhetoric has been steadily increasing in the last decades. However our work in rhetoric seems to have been confined to separate nations or regions without much contact between different European research communities. The Rhetoric Society of Europe seeks to change this!

If you find anything missing on these pages (a journal, conference, organisation, program, etc.), please do not hesitate to contact us, and please do join us on Facebook!

All the best,

the executive board of the RSE
