Adam Cody studies and teaches rhetoric in its capacity to create, sustain, and dissolve the habits of democratic public discourse. In his research, Adam focuses on the use of commonality and particularity to include people in or exclude them from participation in political communities. Current projects seek to explicate the relation between the account of topical reasoning in Aristotle’s Rhetoric and the practice of civic rhetoric during the 5th-century BCE Athenian civil war. In the classroom, he emphasizes the unity of composition and criticism in amplifying students’ proficiency with effective and ethical communication.
