Join Rhetoric@Davis on Thursday, May 23 for our second spring event, a follow-up discussion on partisan politics and corrupted rhetoric. 

On May 2, Rex Stem, associate professor of classics at UC Davis, spoke on “Partisan Politics and Corrupted Rhetoric: Cicero and Sallust on Catiline." He argued, via the depiction of Catiline by Cicero and Sallust, that extreme partisanship corrupts the true names for things and causes the same words to mean different things to different audiences, thereby eroding the effectiveness of deliberative politics.

On May 23, legal scholar and local attorney Tony Tanke will facilitate a follow-up discussion on key points and takeaways from Professor Stem's talk.
