The Polish Rhetoric Society (PRS) is an academic association which aims at:
- broadening theknowledge of rhetoric,
- advancing rhetoric as an academic discipline,
- promoting theteaching of rhetoric,
- facilitating professional cooperation among its members and their institutions.
We want to foster interdisciplinary dialogue relating to ancient and contemporary rhetoric.
Members of the Society represent various disciplines (Polish philology, classical philology, applied linguistics, history, philosophy, sociology) with the view to expanding the awareness and understanding of rhetoric. Among us there are experienced researchers and novice academics. We are theorists and practitioners, academic scholars, school teachers, the PR departments staffers, speech therapists, and specialists in the field of communication.
Every year, the Society organizes conferences and seminars, and patrons oratorical competitions and student debates.
The Polish Rhetoric Society is the publisher of the international journal Res Rhetorica and the Rhetoricum publishing series.
