[eDebate] Last Call-- NCA Panel -- The Post-Procedural Era
Mon Feb 16 08:42:11 CST 2004
Putting out a last call before i submit the panel..there's still room if
you're looking for an opportunity to present in chicago (or just an excuse
to see me in a production of aristophanes' "the clouds" :)
Recently, debaters have argued that the very nature of the
procedural argument in debate is problematic for various reaons.
This panel would seek to either A) articulate brand new visions of
debate outside of the grip of the procedural and the methods for
ajudication, B) paint a dystopian future where the lack of
procedural arguments warp the activity, or C) offer compromises that
defend a foundational debate ethic as transformed by new values.
Most importantly, this panel seeks to move critiques of procedural
issues one step further, into a "world-making" phase that gives
debaters and coaches and judges a roadmap to decipher the
post-procedural era, be it good, bad or merely different.
GET BACK TO ME ASAP and we'll put on a show!
