Literature Argues

Literature argues not by articulating premises and conclusions but by prompting its audience to develop them for itself.  Forum participants may explore this thesis by familiarizing themselves with the postings and responding with comments or new studies.  When the symposium convenes, we will work towards consensus on the core terminology to be used in this approach, identify and investigate theoretical and practical questions, and map out the landscape of future studies.  Register or login and join the conversation!
