Professor of Comparative Literature Peter J. Rabinowitz and James Phelan of Ohio State University gave a joint paper titled “The Rhetoric of the River: Space and Setting in Huckleberry Finn” at Ohio State University on Nov. 13.

The paper centered on the way that rhetorical narrative theory conceptualizes setting, using Twain’s novel as the primary example. The talk was part of a “A Dialogue on Feminist, Cognitive, Rhetorical, and Postmodern Narratologies,” which also featured talks by Robyn Warhol-Down, Brian Richardson, and David Herman. The symposium served, in part, as a preview of a new book-in-progress in which the five critics will engage in a series of conversations about the current state of narrative theory.
