PHL 4000 Rhetoric: The Hyde Park Soapbox

You will learn about the art of persuasive speaking and writing and the use of compositional techniques. Explore common fallacies found in arguments and other communications. Experience one-on-one interactions to simulate personal communication in various business settings. You’ll participate as both giver and receiver of these interactions and will spend time analyzing each to ensure you communicate logically, non-fallaciously, and ethically in all situations. Your final project will be multiple, public soapbox orations ( just like in London’s Hyde Park) on both assigned topics and topics of your own choosing.
