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