Program in Rhetoric and Public Culture at Indiana University

The Indiana program in Rhetoric and Public Culture focuses on the development of rhetorical theory for the analysis and critique of democratic discourses and practices. We examine how rhetorical transactions constitute publics and counter-publics, articulate identities, and mediate conflict under conditions of social diversity and political pluralism.
