ISHR mail ... Colloquium for Ancient Rhetoric

The Colloquium for Ancient Rhetoric was co-founded a few years back by Professor Irene Peirano Garrison (Harvard), Dr. Laura Viidebaum (NYU), and Dr. Niek Janssen (Amherst College). They have created a space in which scholars of ancient rhetoric can present work-in-progress, receive one-on-one critical and supportive engagement from fellow experts, and then hear from the other experts on the line.
