The annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of approximately 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella. Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and collaborate. The 2016 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an initiative of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and is this year hosted by the University of Calgary.

By Carl Peters
On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
