About RSE


The Rhetoric Society of Europe (RSE) is an organization for European researchers and teachers working on the art of rhetoric.

The purpose of RSE is to promote and advance the research, study and teaching of rhetoric in Europe, and to facilitate professional cooperation between its members. The society provides a forum where researchers and others involved in rhetorical research and teaching can meet and exchange ideas, information and documentation about their work.

Even though it is an important aim of the RSE to stimulate European research and teaching in rhetoric, we welcome members from all parts of the world. The RSE not only wishes to improve and enhance European research, but also to facilitate international cooperation in the research, study and teaching of rhetoric.

Join the RSE


The RSE welcome new members - both rhetoric scholars and scholars from other disciplines with an interest in rhetoric, argumentation and communication.

At the moment membership is free of charge. At a later stage a small membership fee will apply and sections of the website may be closed off in a members only section.

We encourage you to become members now to help the study of rhetoric to flourish and to enjoy the membership benefits.
