COMM 604 - Contemporary Rhetorical Criticism


Credits: 3

This course is a graduate seminar in the practice of rhetorical criticism.  Rhetorical criticism examines the process of how we communicate with symbols and the various techniques used by rhetors.  Students analyze how symbolic artifacts (films, speeches, images, words, performances, and "discourse" in general) act on people.  That is, how does a text inform, entertain, arouse, or persuade an audience?  Students explore various rhetorical theories and methods, including neo-Aristotelian, ideological, narrative, generic, metaphoric, and feminist approaches.
