Jan 25
Epideictic Derailment: Unreasonable Argumentation in British Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration

Friday, January 25, 2019 - 17:00 to 19:00

OU Camden, 1-11 Hawley Crescent, NW1 8NP, London

This presentation explores the rhetoric of the national Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) commemoration ceremony, as broadcast on British television. Dr Richardson argues that the televised national ceremonies should be approached as an example of multi-genre epideictic rhetoric, working up meanings through a hybrid combination of genres (speeches, poems, readings), author/animators and modes (speech, music, light, movement and silence) – meanings that have an epideictic function in that they invoke and recreate “norm circles”.
