In contemporary mass media, political ideas and candidates are sold in the same way as commercial products. This course highlights study of current electoral campaigns within the larger context of visual culture, political rhetoric, general and historical theories of argument and persuasion, and the practical considerations of how government, civil society, and consumer culture operate through mass representations. In keeping with the aims of traditional rhetoric, we explore means of guarding against invalid arguments that are convincingly presented, as well as making a better case for your own views. Students in this seminar should expect to deepen their understanding of the use of images and discourse to influence opinion and motivate choice in our time.
