Meet the Author: Robert Terrill

Double-Consciousness and the Rhetoric of Barack Obama

Thursday, November 17, 2016, 5:00pm

College Arts & Humanities Institute

Robert Terrill, Professor of Rhetoric in the Department of English at IUB, will discuss his recent book, Double-Consciousness and the Rhetoric of Barack Obama: The Price and Promise of Citizenship (University of South Carolina Press, 2015). In this book, Terrill suggests that some of Obama’s best oratory presents a form of “double-consciousness,” similar to that formulated by W. E. B. Du Bois, as a resource for the discursive practice of citizenship.
