Can TV shows, popular music, advertisements, and films help us understand rhetorical theory and criticism? The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture, Second Edition includes examples like these to make rhetorical theory and criticism accessible, relevant, and meaningful. Exploring the powerfully persuasive rhetorical messages that pervade daily life, the book provides an easy-to-understand introduction to rhetorical theory and criticism by focusing on the powerful role that popular culture plays in persuading us what to believe and how to behave. The book’s step-by-step approach and range of popular culture examples help students learn to apply rhetorical theory and criticism to their own lives and assigned work.

About the Author:

Deanna Sellnow is currently a professor of strategic communication in the Nicholson School of Communication at the University of Central Florida.  She conducts research in two major areas.  The first focuses on strategic instructional communication in a variety of contexts (e.g., classrooms, risk and crisis, health).  The second focuses on rhetorical studies of popular culture. She has conducted funded research for the USGS, USDA, Department of Homeland Security, and CDC.  Her work is published in refereed national and international journals, as well several books.  She has presented her work across the U.S. and in many countries around the world including, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, England, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Senegal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and Vietnam.  She and her husband, Tim, have a daughter (Debbie), son (Rick), son-in-law (Scott), and grandson (Lincoln).

Review:

′Given the variety of analytic perspectives discussed in this book, each with its own definitions and vocabulary, it is helpful that key terms are both highlighted in colour in the text and then summarily defined in the glossary.′

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. This introductory textbook introduces students to rhetorical theory and criticism through studying the persuasive potential of today's "texts" in popular culture. Each chapter introduces students to a particular rhetorical theory (e.g., narrative, dramatistic, Marxist, feminist), explores examples from popular culture that relate to the theory, and demonstrates how to describe, interpret, and evaluate popular culture texts through rhetorical analysis. Sample student essays in every chapter apply the critical approach of each chapter to a popular culture text to demonstrate rhetorical criticism in practice. Deanna Sellnow offers a step-by-step introduction that makes rhetorical theory and criticism accessible, relevant, and meaningful to students by focusing on the powerful roles that TV programs, advertisements, music, comics, and movies play in influencing our behaviors and beliefs.
