1. Geise, Susanne Seybold. From Ambiguity to Perspicuity: Applying Burke's Pentad as a Means of Preserving and Expanding the Discourse Community of Blacksmithing History in Hancock County.

Degree: MA, Rhetoric and Writing, 2018, University of Findlay

This project examines blacksmithing tools, photographs, and records located in the Hancock Historical Museum’s archives to argue for the significant role blacksmiths performed in forging discourse communities in Hancock County. Historically, scholars in the field of rhetoric and writing tend to work primarily with traditional, print-based archives, and methods sections in related publications are limited in their application to analyzing physical tools such as anvils and tongs. However, the 2016 publication of Rhetoric, Through Everyday Things demonstrates that scholars of rhetoric and writing are increasingly interested in using object-oriented ontologies (also known as “thing” theories) to explore the rhetorical agency of material objects. Therefore, a need exists for publications that demonstrate the methods (such as Kenneth Burke’s pentad) scholars may use to construct the rhetorical context of historical objects in the archive. While my research initially focused on the blacksmithing tools, I soon realized the tools could not speak for themselves and had only limited agency. My research became more meaningful after I interviewed people who shared their knowledge of blacksmithing tools and of blacksmithing shops formerly located throughout Hancock County. As a result, my project demonstrates the importance of collaborating with people to understand the context and agency of archived objects. While informed by object-oriented ontologies, my project reveals both practical and ethical limitations scholars encounter when using object-oriented ontologies to analyze objects that are more historical in nature. Advisors/Committee Members: Denecker, Christine (Committee Chair), Tulley, Christine (Advisor).

2. Krystal, Ingman. Nonverbal communication on the net: Mitigating misunderstanding through the manipulation of text and use of images in computer-mediated communication.

Degree: MA, Rhetoric and Writing, 2019, University of Findlay

The disconnect between computer-mediated communication (CMC) and face-to-face (F2F) communication has been blamed on the absence of visual and physical nonverbal cues. As a result of the heavy lack of visual and physical interaction, previous research has deemed that F2F provides a richer environment for communication overall (Carter, 2003; Byron & Baldridge, 2005; Kruger J, Epley, Parker, & Ng, 2005; Kalman, Scissors, Gill, & Gergle, 2013). Despite some claims suggesting CMC will never be as fluid nor as rich as F2F (Carter, 2003; Byron & Baldridge, 2005; Kruger J, Epley, Parker, & Ng, 2005), communicating online through the use of various modes such as emoticons, nonverbal vocalizations, memes, stickers, kaomoji, color, and video are here to stay and only enrich CMC. Using a combination of the aforementioned modes, Internet users converse online using textual and visual means which resemble F2F nonverbal cues. Emoticons, nonverbal vocalization, and memes serve as substitutes for F2F nonverbal communication in CMC contexts. This body of work aims to analyze digital nonverbal cue use on Twitter by users of different languages. Advisors/Committee Members: Tulley, Christine (Committee Chair).

3. Spathon, Daniel. Dialektens retorik : En studie om dialekter som retorisk resurs.

Degree: Culture and Education, 2013, Södertörn University

This paper examines dialect as a rhetorical means of persuasion. A survey containing inquires about four different Swedish dialects have been handed out mainly in Södertörn University and Stockholm University, in order to research the values and connotations of theese dialects. The four chosen dialects are as following: Göteborgska, Stockholmska, Norrländska and Skånska. The results of the survey are processed and compiled to see which attitudes these values and connotations may indicate to each dialect. These attitudes and values are then discussed in correlation with five rhetorical theories: Attitude as a means of persuation, Ethos, Persona, Rhetorical Agency and Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of Field and Habitus. From this discussion, conclusions are drawn about whether dialect may be used as a means of persuasion. However, the values and attitudes presented from the survey represents only the survey participants, and cannot be regarded as a general opinion. Altough it is a small-scale survey, certain conclusions can be made. The author of this essay concludes that dialect may be used as a means of persuasion, based on the survey results and rhetorical theories presented above. Finally, a critical component for this rhetorical agent is the adjustment of the audience. Without knowing the audiences values and attitudes to the dialect, the outcome of the effect may be hard to predict.
