Presidential Debate Lecture Series: Politeness in Presidential Debates
As part of the UNLV Presidential Debate Lecture Series, Dr. Edward Hinck, professor at the College of Communication & Fine Arts at Central Michigan University, will discuss politeness in presidential debates.
Dr. Hinck's interests lie in the study of political debate and forensic pedagogy. Currently, Dr. Hinck is in the process of working on a book project with his colleagues William O. Dailey and Shelly Hinck on how face saving and face threatening strategies shape audience's perceptions of candidates in presidential and vice presidential debates. As the director of the Forensics Program at CMU, he enjoys coaching undergraduates in speech activities sponsored by the National Forensic Association and mentoring graduate assistants who serve as assistant coaches.
This event is free and open to the public.
