COMM 6260 - Rhetoric, Culture, and Communication Technology

This is a graduate seminar designed to introduce Ph.D. students to the history of rhetorical theory and its intersections with culture and technology.  The course will consider how theoretical reflection about language and other forms of communication is entwined with changes in technology of communication as well as cultural paradigm shifts.  Rather than trace a linear evolution of rhetorical theory from Classical Antiquity to the present, the course will focus on competing conceptualizations of rhetoric and rhetorical power in different historical periods.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
