The US Chapter of the Latin American Rhetoric Society promotes the study of historical and contemporary Latin American rhetorics, including those newly flourishing in the US, Canada, and other regions as a consequence of technological innovation and migrations associated with political, economic, educational, health, and environmental forces. We aim to provide a mechanism for collaboration and communication among scholars working on such projects. We are affiliated with La Asociación Latinamericana de Retórica, a hemisphere-wide coalition of like-minded scholars.
