Adam Cody studies and teaches rhetoric as the art of effective communication. In his research, he is a historian of arguments and narratives relating to topics of democracy, citizenship, and empire, with a particular focus on the Greco-Roman rhetorical tradition. Current research projects analyze ancient Greek oratory, drama, and poetry to explain rhetoric's role in creating, sustaining, and dissolving the conditions of public discourse. In the classroom, he emphasizes the mutually co-productive relationship of composition and criticism in cultivating proficiency with the habits of effective and ethical communication.

Advisor: Dr. Rosa Eberly
