RHET 005 - History of Rhetoric

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically

This course introduces students to the study of oral public discourse, the development of classical rhetoric, narrative, and the performance of classical texts, as well as the distinction between orality and literacy in the construction of narrative. The course explores the impact of the development of the printing press, publishing, and journalism on the construction, dissemination, and reception of messages by audiences. Comparisons are made between the various communication contexts and their role in shaping spoken or written rhetorical “texts.”
