Join The RSE

Rhetoric Society of Europe (RSE) is an organization for European researchers and teachers working on the art of rhetoric. 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. Below you can find more details of the membership fee and the fee collection procedure. 

The RSE offers the following fee categories for a two-year membership:

  • €40 – Regular member (faculty)
  • €25 – PhD student and retired faculty member

This is less than €2 a month for faculty members. We believe it represents good value for members while enabling the Society to develop and to realise its ambitions. 

Furthermore, as a member, you will:

  • be entitled to a reduction to the registration fee for the Rhetoric in Society conference
  • receive the regular RSE newsletter 
  • take part in the wider RSE international community of scholars.

To become a member or confirm your existing membership, please follow these simple steps:

  • transfer the fee amount that applies to you (€40/€25) to the following bank account number of the Rhetoric Society of Europe VZW:

  • include the following information in the description field of the bank transfer: RSE membership – [your name] – [your email address]
