Using the Purdue University Public Affairs (C-SPAN) Video Archives in the Classroom To Study President George Bush and the Language of Aggression during the Persian Gulf War.
Schnell, Jim
This paper describes the methodology employed to study videotapes of presentations made by President George Bush during the crisis in the Persian Gulf. Analysis of President Bush's language in relation to the events of the Gulf War was undertaken. Videotapes were used because they allowed for analysis of nonverbal communication as well as verbal statements. A chart was developed that allowed the reviewer to study the President's communication in terms of logo (use of reasoning), ethos (character of speaker), and pathos (stimulation of emotions). The President's communication on the 11 videotaped presentations was analyzed using the chart technique. Eleven filled in charts are included along with a 13-item bibliography. (DB)
