My rhetoric colleagues and I are pleased to host the second public lecture in the Lincoln's Rhetorical Worlds speaker series. David Zarefsky will give a public lecture on the "House Divided" speech; if you're local, join us at Levis Faculty Center on Wed., Feb. 4 from 3:30-5:30 pm. More info on the talk and speaker series here. During his visit Professor Zarefsky will also discuss some of his published work with the Rhetorical Studies Reading Group and visit Ned O'Gorman's class on Lincoln. Phew!
For those of you not local, you can still participate in David's visit. On Tuesday morning at 10 a.m., he will be the featured guest on our local public radio station's morning talk program, Focus 580. The topic is "Political Strategy and Public Opinion in the Words of Abraham Lincoln." Check here for info about listening live or downloading the podcast.
