By Victoria Dekle and Brian Connors Manke

Rachael Hoy might be a graduate student in English, but right now her brain is more focused on mapping than sentence fragments.

The Art of Argument and Bullshit: Jenny Rice

This fall, University of Kentucky WRD Professor Jenny Rice will be leading the course UKC 381: Argumentation - “Deliberation, Persuasion, and Bullshit in the Public Sphere." While the title of the course may seem provocative, the topic is serious. In the class, students can expect to examine the tactics and strategies used to argue key issues in the public sphere and what the legacy of those arguments have left us with today.

In this podcast, Professor Rice discusses the role of argumentation in our lives daily as well as what philosopher Harry Frankfurt infamously labeled “bullshit" and its impact on conversations both local and national.

Mapping the Abstract: Jenny Rice

Most of us associate mapping with cartography, but that's not always the case. The Committee on Social Theory is presenting a graduate-level course on mapping this semester and Jenny Rice, assistant professor in the Division of Writing, Rhetoric and Digital Media, is one of its four instructors. Jeremy Crampton, Jeffrey Peters, and Susan Larson are also teaching sections of the class, each talking about a different aspect of mapping. In this interview, Rice talked about the ways we can 'map' ideas and arguments.
