Academic Debate: An International Perspective Focusing on Great Britain.
Congalton, David
Presented by one of two debaters from the United States who participated in a debate tour of England under the sponsorship of the Speech Communication Association, this paper discusses the tour in terms of three major goals: cultural exchange, developing dialogue skills, and educational exchange. In addition, it comments on the ability of American debaters to aid in the establishment and expansion of British debate unions, the challenge for American debaters to adjust to a new system of debate where the emphasis is in different areas, the opportunity for American debaters to engage in dialogue directly with an audience, and the logical extension of the educational commitment to offer varied forensic opportunities.
