More information concerning On-line registration and the ISHR 2009 Program will soon be posted on the Conference web site.

The International Society for the History of Rhetoric (ISHR) will hold its 2009 Congress at McGill University (Montreal, Québec, Canada) in conjunction with the Canadian Society for the Study of Rhetoric (CSSR) (like we did in Saskatoon in 1997). The CSSR had its own Call for Papers, offering a Special session (“The Embodiment of Rhetoric/Rhetoric of Embodiment”).

The two meetings will be held consecutively. On-site registration at McGill University will be an on-going process from Monday night, July 20th, 2009 until Saturday, July 25th, 2009. The CSSR Conference will be held on Tuesday, July 21st, 2009 and Wednesday, July 22nd 2009. The ISHR Welcoming Reception will be held on the evening of Wednesday, July 22nd. The sessions of the ISHR Conference itself will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 23rd, 24th and 25th, with excursions to Québec City and Ottawa on Sunday, July 26th, 2009.
