Rhetoric of Science and Technology


Welcome to James Collier's section of the Rhetoric of Science and Technology (English 5674; CRN 17488; STS 5424; CRN 18401) for spring 2011.

"The rhetorician is not responsible for conjuring up alternative sciences whole cloth. But the rhetorician should be able to pose telling questions to scientific experts. These should place their differences in open view and force them to offer more publicly accessible stories on why we should take all — as opposed to just some — of them seriously. Since we cannot all become experts, experts must learn how to deal with all of us. Such is the project of rhetorical reclamation."
Steve Fuller, (2003) "The Globalization of Rhetoric and Its Discontents," Poroi: Vol. 2: Iss. 2: p. 65-82.
