The Pittsburgh Consortium for Rhetoric and Discourse Studies

The Pittsburgh Consortium for Rhetoric and Discourse Studies (PCRDS) is a collection of scholars and students from Pittsburgh and the surrounding area interested in the analysis and production of speech, writing, and visuals using methods, techniques, and concepts from a variety of disciplines including rhetoric, linguistics, communication studies, composition studies, sociology, and philosophy.

The goals of the consortium are to improve communication, promote collaboration, and foster community amongst students and scholars interested broadly in these areas of study in and around Pittsburgh.

The consortium is possible because of generous support from the Department of English at Carnegie Mellon University and the Department of Communications at the University of Pittsburgh.
