COMS 8310 - Rhetoric and Popular Culture

This course introduces students to major works in the study of rhetoric, popular culture, and their relationship. It assumes that forms of popular culture (e.g., popular music, advertising, television programming, popular novels, etc.) are social artifacts that serve an important persuasive function in society. Popular culture provides conceptual and practical frameworks that orient individuals to the world. Thus, this course will help graduate students to develop a set of theoretical, methodological, and analytical resources for researching and interpreting the persuasive functions of popular culture in specific historical and geographical contexts.
