“I thought it would be a fantastic idea to put rhetoric at the heart of my courses, especially given all the chaos around the world right now […] There is a lot of hate and a lot of it is this inability and really, not just an inability, but an unwillingness to communicate with people.”Tweet
“I am the kind of person who does very strongly believe that rhetoric can […] make a tremendous difference in things […] words themselves are power.”Tweet
“People from all ages need to understand that whether you’re talking to somebody older, younger, or about the same age as you, we need to be able to communicate with them, and do it in a way that does not leave room for a lot of that judgment and a lot of that hostility.”Tweet
“Because I come from a creative writing background, Yes. I like to look at all those students and say, ‘Guess what? Break every rule that you have been told. Let’s have some fun with this.’”Tweet
“There’s that pressure […] knowing […] that what I’m teaching my students or what I’m not teaching my students will have an impact on every other class that they take.”Tweet
“I do think that there is something wonderful that happens when the academic collides with the creative.”Tweet
