Lectures of the day: Common sense and contempt
What is rhetorical power? What is its significance for freedom of speech? And what is needed for society’s silent voices to be heard? Anders Johansen, professor of non-fiction studies at the University of Bergen, published Komme til orde. Politisk retorikk 1814-1913 in 2019.
With that book as his starting point, Johansen talks in this lecture about some rhetorical battles in Norwegian political history and what determines who wins.
The event will be held in Norwegian.
