Abstract

Although housed in an English department, I'm originally a rhetorician trained in the Communication tradition. My main research projects have been in argumentation theory, with emphases on the underlying rationale of the appeal to authority, and on how citizens who disagree, often deeply, can nevertheless coordinate their argumentative process. I'm now extending these lines of work to give an account of the rhetorical force of expert authority, and in general to study discourse between scientists and citizens
