RTC Colloquium: Orchestrated appeals for vegetarianism

This is a past event.

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This is a past event.

This RTC colloquium employs Jonathan Safran Foer’s bestseller Eating Animals as a case study to forward the rhetorical technique of “orchestrated appeals,” as a persuasive strategy for communicating vegetarianism to potentially resistant audiences. By mapping the web of connections between food and varied life areas, rhetors can identify with values already held by audiences with diverse ideological commitments and explore alignments between existing beliefs and exigencies for change. 

The speakers are Dr. Oren Abeles and graduate student Emma Lozon.
