SPEE 34 Image Rhetoric: Image Attack, Image Repair, and Image Promotion
Image is an important and complicated part of communication. Rhetoric can build image, and rhetoric can tear down image. Rhetoric can attack image, and rhetoric can defend image. Each focus of this course (image attack, image repair, image promotion) builds on classic and modern work in apologia and persuasion, including studies of politics, entertainment, and commerce. Speaking and writing activities will broaden our ideas about image. No prerequisites.
