CMN 538 1 - Seminar Rhetorical Theory - Social Movement Comm

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


Study of special topics in the history of rhetorical theory. Course Information: May be repeated to a maximum of 16 hours.

Special Instructions:

This course has two main and intersecting goals: 1) to survey some of the major rhetorical approaches to and debates within the study of social movements and social protest, and 2) to develop an interdisciplinary toolbox of key concepts, theories, and methodologies for the study of social protest and social movement(s). Rather than focus on sociological theories of social movement formation, organization, and mobilization, we will instead take a (critical) communicative/rhetorical perspective that focuses on how rhetoric and discourse create social movement through texts, agents, audiences, tactics, and communication media.
