Christians and Rhetoric in an Election Year | October 18 and 25, 11:15 am to 12:15 pm
We are in a season where rhetoric matters. We hear super-charged messages all around us. How can we process what we hear, become aware of how language can be used to manipulate us, and arrive at a deeper understanding? Further, as Christians, what we say and how we say it matters. How do we speak the truth in love – to those who agree and those who do not? This two-session class will address these issues and more.
Our teacher is Dr. Kevin Dean, Professor in the Communication Studies Department and Director of the Honors College at West Chester University. Dr. Dean describes himself as a political and communication junkie, and over the years has coached students who have distinguished themselves at the National Forensics Championships.
