RESEARCH

I have three primary threads to my program of research.  My present research focus involves the study of sport and society, primarily baseball. I use sport as a vehicle to examine the social functions of rhetoric including image construction, image repair, and media messages. Another area of my research examines the forms and functions of rhetoric in shaping the law.  This includes examining formal legal discourse and the ways various discourse communities engage the law with respect to social and political change.  Here I primarily focus on the study of marginalized groups and others denied legal protections.  A third thread of my research program examines the connections of rhetoric and democracy and the use of rhetoric to enhance democratic practice.
