POROI Journal

The December 2008 issue of the publication 'POROI: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Rhetorical Analysis and Invention' is available by visiting the journal website. The articles in this issue reflect on our recent national election from an explicitly, indeed insistently, rhetorical perspective.

John Nelson discusses the realist style in politics and its contemporary appearances and permutations. John Louis Lucaites and Robert Hariman consider the visual rhetorics that are so prominent in current forms of political communication. Cara Finnegan discusses the evidentiary power of visual rhetorics. And Brett Ommen analyzes the indexical nature of visual images.
