Professor Alan Finlayson from the University of East Anglia will give a presentation with the title "Rhetoric and the Study of Politics".

Abstract:

Western political theory and political science was, at its foundation in Ancient Greece, fundamentally concerned with social communication and with the forms and practices of public debate and argument: rhetoric. But today that concern has been somewhat displaced. In this talk I make the case for a renewed “Rhetorical Political Analysis” which combines political theory and political science with insights from the rhetorical tradition of thought and analysis.  This, I suggest, can help us to make sense of ongoing changes (and crises) of contemporary politics. I discuss, in broad terms, four key research areas or themes to which I think RPA can particularly contribute: political institutions, media technologies, ideologies and democratic culture.
