Jesuit Rhetorical Tradition [Event Flyer]

Presented By: Steven Mailloux, PhD, English
  K.J. Peters, PhD, English

This session will focus on the intellectual and spiritual principles that shape Eloquentia Perfecta the Jesuits&rsquo unique and vibrant engagement with the Rhetorical Tradition and its historic and intellectual foundations. We will discuss how Eloquentia Perfecta combines oral and written rhetoric, and in its contemporary form engages other forms of literacy and new media as well. We will also explore how Eloquentia Perfecta's intercultural dimension is contextually bound to its audiences and incorporates Ignatian pedagogical goals by integrating eloquence and critical thinking with moral discernment. - Participation in the Rhetorical Principles and Practices session in the afternoon of the same day is recommended.
