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”.
