My research interests cover rhetorical criticism of political rhetoric.
I am interesed in norms of rhetorical action, how these norms create or inhibit participation, and in how communities are established, maintained and changed in rhetorical texts.
My curiosity is piqued by taken-for-granted conceptions of what it means to communicate well and by unconventional and unexpected forms of rhetorical practice.
I have taught the following obligatory courses in the Rhetoric program: Rhetorical criticism (BA), Rhetoric in Society (BA), Speech Workshop (BA), Contemporary Theoretical and Methodological Perspectives (MA)
I have also taught the elective course Poliical Rhetoric and Humour (MA)
I have supervised BA-projects about polysemy and framing. And I have supervised MA-theses about Mugabe and establishment of ethos and about Nelson Mandela and his use of narratives.
