Event description

Description

Dr. Susan C. Jarratt

Professor Emerita of Comparative Literature

Argument and persuasion are rarely, if ever, about reason and logic alone. Professor Susan Jarratt explores with us the emotional dimensions of argument and invites us to pay attention to the feelings ever-present in any debate.

This workshop series provides students with a unique opportunity to develop skills and ways of thinking about debate, argument, and persuasion in contemporary society. Each expert workshop presenter and facilitator focuses on a particular aspect of debate, from effective listening to considering multiple viewpoints. Join us for an interactive learning experience to help you consider how you might become more persuasive and argue more effectively! Pizza and light refreshments will be served following each workshop.
