Alumni News: CAS Alumna to be published in April 2021 with Strata Publishing

ALUMNI NEWS:

“Contemporary Rhetorical Criticism”  by CAS alumna Sarah Kornfield (PhD 2012), associate professor of communication and an affiliated professor of women’s and gender studies at Hope College, will be published in April 2021 with Strata Publishing: http://www.stratapub.com/Kornfield/Kornfield.htm.  According to the publisher, the book "invites students to explore a wide range of texts, applying both traditional methods and very recent approaches. Clear presentations of theory and principles, with abundant examples, explain and illustrate the rhetorical workings of historical and contemporary public address, films, television shows, musical performances, and other verbal, visual, and material texts—even personal interactions.” Among the endorsements on the book’s cover is one from CAS alumnus, the late Martin J. Medhurst, who wrote “This is the finest criticism textbook I have ever read – and I think I’ve read them all.” High praise, indeed.

Congratulations, Dr. Kornfield!
