Self-nominations are encouraged, and incumbents are encouraged to run again, if interested.

We encourage members and non-members alike to attend our 2019 National Communication Association Business Meeting where we will dedicate space and time to reviewing our organizational practices mentioned above to critically assess how we have reproduced whiteness within the organization.

We also welcome further discussion of these issues and our own responsibilities for amending them at the [email protected] pre-conference addressing Boundaries.

Although boundary work has commonly been leveraged to describe the rhetorical practices of demarcation and separation (Gieryn, 1983; Keränen, 2005; Miller, 2005, Derkatch, 2012), rhetorical scholars have also taken an interest in practices that foster understanding, calibration, or coordination across boundaries (Ceccarelli, 2001; Wilson & Herndl, 2007; Graham & Herndl 2013).

is an opportune moment to re-visit the implications of boundary-work in ARSTM.

Article III of ARSTM bylaws provide term limits and an updated (2019) provision for online elections: Section 3.01 – Appointment and Term of Office The elected Officers of the corporation shall be President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Webmaster, and Social Media Officer.

The elected Officers of the corporation shall be chosen from the membership and serve a term of one (1) year.

Service loads are reasonable with most positions normally requiring under 40 hours per year; the President normally has a more significant commitment, and those nominated should be able to serve actively in that role when they become President.

Please consider nominating scholars from diverse backgrounds and fields.

With rapidly proliferating scholarly perspectives that often span across multiple departmental homes, Rhetorical Studies is itself deeply implicated in the formation and recalcitrance of boundaries.

Lynch and Kinsella (2013), for instance, demarcate the meaningful differences between Media Studies and Rhetorical Studies’ treatments of technology.

Moreover, diverging operative definitions of rhetoric are themselves boundaries that delimit the types of knowledge that can be produced and the perspectives that can be heard (Taylor, 1996).
