ABOUT US

The Association for the Rhetoric of Science and Technology (ARST) seeks to provide an international forum for researchers, teachers, and students interested in the rhetorical dimensions of science, technology, and medicine. ARST was founded in 1992 by scholars at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Iowa who began meeting in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National Communication Association (NCA). Since then, ARST has hosted day-long conferences in conjunction with the annual meeting of the NCA, and more recently, has hosted concurrent meetings with the biennial conferences of the Rhetoric Society of America (RSA). In addition, ARST hosts panels and papers at the NCA conference. Originally called the American Association for the Rhetoric of Science and Technology (AARST), in November 2006 members voted unanimously to rename the organization to the Association for the Rhetoric of Science and Technology in order to better reflect the international nature of its membership and intellectual concerns.
