Rhetorical Traditions

This course introduces students to foundational perspectives on rhetoric developed by writers and teachers in Ancient Greece and Rome, such as the Sophists, Isocrates, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, and Quintilian. Working from these foundations, the course also examines one or more ways in which the classical tradition of rhetoric has been revisited and/or challenged in more recent times through, for example, enlightenment rhetoric, the study of women's rhetoric, the new rhetoric of the 20th century, the recent revitalization of sophistic rhetoric, the development of non-western perspectives on rhetoric, etc. (sem 3) cr 3.
