Abstract: This paper examines the rhetorical style of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address not as we celebrate it today, but as it was transmitted to audiences in its day. It compares the differences in the style of three separate newspaper printings of the Address that vary from the “traditional” version. This paper demonstrates the differences (and loses) created by the move from oration to newsprint. It explores the interaction between style and content, and between text and context.

Abstract: In August of 2009, Sonia Sotomayor became the nation’s first Latina Supreme Court justice. The extraordinary experience and education of Sonia Sotomayor, as well as her unique American narrative, created a welcoming admittance to the Supreme Court from some, as well as hostility from others. Sotomayor’s racial and gender traits had never been experienced or seen before in the Supreme Court. In addition, her discourse (specifically her “Wise Latina” description) is one that American has never considered before. However, the Supreme Court is not the only political arena that Sotomayor entered. One area in which Sotomayor’s persona emerged was the world of caricatures and political cartoons. This paper argues that the rhetoric of these Sotomayor political cartoons is integrated and consistent regardless of the variety of themes. Style is a physical and linguistic disguise for underlying, symbolic tensions within our culture and politics. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible link of style of political cartoons on Sotomayor and the underlying messages and themes that went beyond her. To achieve this purpose I discovered what seemed to be representative political cartoons which alluded to the major dramatic elements from the pentad. By examining over 30 cartoons, I found five major patterns: 1) Race, 2) Confirmation hearings and political tensions, 3) “Wise Latina,” 4) Lady Justice & Piñatas, and 5) Empathy and Gender. Moreover, these themes revealed that in order to resolve political tensions in a successful stylistic manner, one must take a dramatic approach in order to engage the American public discourse. Such ironic ways of political, racial, and cultural progress deserve our undivided attention as rhetorical scholars. These political cartoons serve as a speculative instrument not just to the politics of style, but the politics of minorities. Not only can we note who the contenders are, but we can be aware of where the drama originates. These Sotomayor cartoons get to the heart of the numerous tensions that are not only situational (during the confirmation hearings) but the everlasting oppositions that all minorities face, struggle, and attempt to overcome in American society.

3. Nethersole, Scott. "The Style of Violence, or the Violence of Style? Vasari's Life of Andrea del Castagno and Domenico Veneziano" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Sheraton Hotel and Marina, San Diego, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p602736_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The paper will examine Vasari’s double life of Andrea del Castagno and Domenico Veneziano, in which he narrated that the former artist had slain the latter. The story is untrue, as Castagno predeceased Veneziano. Vasari, however, did not invent the tale, as it had been circulating for some decades. It must have seemed plausible. To contextualize this fictive event, this paper investigates whether artists of the fifteenth century were – or were perceived to be – a violent group. It then asks about Vasari’s motivation in telling the story. He used the tale to comment on Castagno’s style. His propensity for violence was reflected in his "crude and harsh" coloring unlike that of the Venetian, which was marked by "much grace." Since fifteenth-century Italians perceived a relationship between one’s life and one’s work, could it be that certain pictorial styles were understood as violent?

Abstract: Imagination, creativity, and style are explored in this interactive session as they find applicability in the work of instructional designers and developers. Style is normally considered part of a body of creative work in the fine arts. However, style, being generally consistent, falls outside the usual definition of creativity. Imagination is a major key to creative ideation that is not given much treatment in the research literature. What do these elements mean for designers?

Abstract: The recent success of populist political actors in several European countries and the US presidential election and the dramatization and emotional tone of political communication in news media have been the object of several theoretical and empirical studies in the past decade. It has been argued that the mediatization of politics and the convergence of populist and tabloid communication styles may foster these developments, as it helps to promote populist ideas in mass communication. In this paper, we disentangle the identity of assumed populist actors, populist communication strategies, and populist communication styles to investigate interactions between media logic and populism in Western democracies.
We find that tabloid media play a minor role in the promotion of populist communication. Opinionated weeklies, on the other hand, encourage the use of populist communication strategies and styles in their coverage on political issues - despite not paying more attention per se to populist actors. We also find that the styles commonly associated with populist actors are indeed more closely related to populist actors than they are to tabloid media.
