Online Research Seminar 25 June 2021: The Audience Perspective in Rhetorical Research
What is the real impact of speeches on listeners? The active involvement of audiences in rhetorical studies has become more important than ever before. However, rhetorical research into the understanding and conceptualization of the rhetorical audience is scarce. In particular, little attention has been given to empirical explorations of actual audiences and the effects of speeches on these audiences. This research seminar will provide us with new ideas about the way in which rhetoric works as well as new methods for rhetorical studies.
