Emma Frances Bloomfield (Communication Studies) and Gabriela Tscholl, '15 BA and '17 MA Communication Studies, published an article about political rhetoric in the 2016 presidential election in the Kenneth Burke Journal titled, "Analyzing Warrants and Worldviews in the Rhetoric of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton: Burke and Argumentation in the 2016 Presidential Election." Comparing the idealist argumentative strategies of Trump to the pragmatic argumentative strategies of Clinton, the authors argue for the importance of the rhetorical dramas offered by the candidates and their implications for the future of political communication.
