Overall Presents at Conference

joel overallAssistant Professor of English Joel Overall recently presented at the International Rhetoric Society of America Conference in San Antonio, Texas. His paper was entitled “Kenneth Burke and Nazi Musical Propaganda”. The presentation examined noted rhetorician Kenneth Burke’s review of Paul Hindemith’s “Mathis der Maler” symphony to understand how Nazi propagandists persuaded the German public to join the National Socialists in 1934. In addition, his multimedia presentation breaks new ground in rhetorical studies by investigating how Burke’s extensive rhetorical theory might apply to nonlinguistic rhetorics.
