Faculty Joshua Frye and Macy Suchan, Communication

Dr. Joshua Frye and Macy Suchan (student) recently published an article entitled “Nobel Peace Speech” in a special issue of the French/English international ESSACHESS Journal for Communication Studies. The special issue focuses on rhetorics of peace in public and civil discourse in contemporary global cultures. They analyze the discourse of Nobel peace speech inductively and argue that the organizing principle of the Nobel peace speech genre is the repetitive form of normative liberal principles and values that function as rhetorical topoi. These topoi include freedom and justice and appeal to the inviolable, inborn right of human beings to exercise certain political and civil liberties.
