Live Theory: Living Writing & Rhetoric invites scholars in rhetorical theory, composition studies, and beyond to share their expertise with us in the form of a 15 minute talk, followed by a discussion with USC and other university faculty and guests who are able to attend live via Zoom. At Live Theory, we do not bring theory down from the clouds. Rather, theory never belonged, and perhaps never was, in the clouds to begin with. At Live Theory, we live theory, bringing life to writing and rhetoric in our scholarship, institutions, classrooms, daily lives, and beyond.
