Call for Submissions for Harlot’s Fall 2013 general issue

It’s that time again! Harlot is inviting adventurous critics, artists, and thinkers to examine the real, important, and everyday powers of rhetoric in innovative and creative ways. With a broad readership (including academics and non-academics), Harlot asks critical questions and provokes playful discussions that are interesting and relevant to diverse audiences. We welcome contributions of all sorts–in terms of subject, style, and presentation–and encourage pieces that engage our audience through meaningful media productions (i.e. accessible alphabetic texts and/or multimedia pieces such as videos, audio files, webtexts, etc.). Submit to Harlot and reveal those arts of persuasion.

If you have any questions or want to chat through an idea, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the editors (

Submission Deadline: July 15th

Laugh, cry, & identify with readymade rhetoric in episode 1: valediction

Dear Viewers, A Rousing Intercourse is a vlog that comments on everyday rhetorical practices. This first episode is about readymade rhetoric and valediction. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll identify with that frustrating aspect of our digital lives: email valediction. Enjoy our humorous take on email valediction as well as our suggestions for changing valediction to better fit with our current cultural moment. Warmest Regards, A Rousing Intercourse
