Book Description

June 30, 2009 1577666232 978-1577666233
Spanning topics from Rustic design to bot-written texts in Wikipedia, from the rhetoric of graphic novels to medieval Arabic rhetorical theory, The Responsibilities of Rhetoric combines reflections on today's globalized world with responsive glances toward the rhetoric of the future. A product of the 2008 conference of the Rhetoric Society of America, thirty-one contributors ask, if rhetors are responsible and responsive to their publics, if rhetoricians instruct and empower those who learn from them, what are the responsibilities of rhetoric in our time? Their discussions implicate the promotion of public reason in society, the ability to unite publics and communities, the commitment to provide visions of the possible, and the responsibility to prepare students to think and deliberate in contemporary society.

Titles of related interest also from Waveland Press: de Velasco-Lehn, Rhetoric: Concord and Controversy (ISBN 9781577667353); and Zarefsky-Benacka, Sizing Up Rhetoric (ISBN 9781577665328).
