ASIAN POLITICAL RHETORIC This course introduces students to the features of argumentation and public address in Asian countries. Students will apply perspectives from Asian and Western rhetorical canons to critique political messages by leaders of Asian countries and connect themes in historical speeches to contemporary Asian politics. Through reading responses, speaker case studies, analyses of speech texts, a Rhetorics of Asia museum project, and a semester research project, students will engage with topics such as values and practices in Asian argumentation, the identity paradoxes of Asian female orators, transnational oratory, and the rhetorics of independence in Asian countries.
