Abstract

Debates have an effect on particular election outcomes or serve as a way to learn about voters. As part of the Presidential Debate Lecture Series, Dr. Kathryn Olson, professor and chair of the Communication Department in the College of Letters & Science at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, will discuss how presidential debates might illustrate candidate accountability and performances of democratic leadership. Olson uses rhetorical criticism and argumentation to examine American texts, issues, movements, images, and debates with public consequences.
