Conference in Rhetorical Criticism. Address of the Annual Conference and Commended Papers (16th, Hayward, California, April 24, 1981).
Kemp, Alice Manion, Ed.
The two papers in this compilation were drawn from a conference designed to encourage scholars to continue the rhetorical tradition. The first paper, delivered by Todd Sorenson and Carrie Stopek, was the paper most highly commended by a panel of critics at the conference. The paper uses fantasy theme analysis, specifically the three fantasy theme myths of the Hero, the Fellowship, and the Sacrifice, to examine the so-called "electronic church," today's television ministry. The second paper, by Anthony Hillbruner, was the major address of the conference and presents a rhetorical analysis of Hegel's theory of dialectic. (FL)
