Where is the Passion?: The Role of Tone and Emotion in Argumentation
A “Great Debates” Workshop by Professor Susan C. Jarratt
Wednesday, April 26, 2017
4:00 to 5:30 pm

Center for Excellence in Writing and Communication
Science Library 193

Logic often reigns supreme in argumentation, but does logic work alone? And does logic alone work? In this workshop, Professor Emerita Susan C. Jarratt (UCI, Comparative Literature) walks us through why emotion matters in debate and how to use it effectively.

The Great Debates Series is designed to develop proactive, informed and conscientious citizens and future leaders by providing a forum for respectful and substantive discussion of contentious issues relevant in today’s world. The series will exemplify civil discourse within our campus community through organized debates, hosted by an academic school or administrative unit. The topics selected for debate will be relevant and interesting for students, staff and faculty. A post-debate reception will follow each event so participants can delve deeper into the topic, explore communication styles, or simply enjoy good conversation.

The Great Debates Workshop Series provides students with a unique opportunity to develop skills and ways of thinking about debate, argument, and persuasion in contemporary society. Each expert workshop presenter and facilitator focuses on a particular aspect of debate, from effective listening to considering multiple viewpoints. Join us for an interactive learning experience to help you consider how you might become more persuasive and argue more effectively.
