UNLV Presidential Debate Lecture Series Episode 3

As part of the UNLV Presidential Debate Lecture Series, Dr. Edward Hinck, professor at the College of Communication & Fine Arts at Central Michigan University, discussed 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. UNLV TV recorded the event and the video will be housed on the UNLV Libraries Digital Scholarship institutional repository.
