The blog of the Rhetoric Society of America, The Blogora, will be hosting an online reading of Pat Gehrke‘s book The Ethics of Politics and Speech. This is a great opportunity, and I’m particulary happy that the readings will be relatively slow paced. In my own transition from grad school to the professoriate, I’ve been able to keep up with everything, including an active writing schedule, except perhaps reading. And reading becomes the stuff of future writing, so this will be a great chance to get on the ball. We’ve tried events similar to this one before on The Blogora, but I think the logistics are better set up than they ever have been. Grad students and professors alike are welcome to participate. So, take the chance to read with, and meet, digitally at least, some new folks in the discipline. Personally, I’ve been meaning to read this book for some time anyway. Thanks, Blogora folks, for putting this together.
