Retoryka w Meksyku


Studies on rhetoric in Mexico have undergone remarkable development, resulting in the creation of the Asociación Méxicana de Retórica (Mexican Association of Rhetoric) in 2010. The rhetorical practices that have permeated the history of Mexico, from indigenous peoples such as the Náhuatl, through the Novo-Hispanic period, the period of Independence, the Revolution, the avant-garde and the current political, legal, and social developments, have been the subject of multiple analyses.

This issue of Res Rhetorica aims to disseminate Rhetoric in Mexico and to promote dialogue among academic fields from different continents in the international scientific community. Moving beyond the traditional core of North American and European rhetorical studies, we hope to bring diverse voices to the field of rhetorical research. We think that producing spaces for collaboration and engaging with scholars who are conversant with traditions other than the American or European only enriches the discipline of rhetoric so that global scholarship can benefit.

To that end, we welcome contributions discussing such themes as:

  • Studies of rhetoric in Mexico: A historical perspective
  • Contemporary rhetorical studies in Mexico
  • Rhetoric and Law in Mexico
  • Rhetoric and Literary Studies in Mexico
  • Rhetoric and Linguistics in Mexico
  • Place of rhetoric in the academic system in Mexico
  • Contribution of rhetorical studies in Mexico to global academic scholarship
  • Specificities and opportunities of rhetorical studies in native languages
  • Role of translation in popularizing rhetorical studies from Mexico

Important dates:

Deadline for article submission: January 30, 2024.

Planned publication date: September 2024
