Contemporary Public Forums

The readings this week all consider the nature of public discourse: what is or is not acceptable to discuss or worthy of debate in a publicly accessible forum. If you were to have a conversation with one of these authors, what would you want to discuss with them? Do you think their ideas are important for how you understand mindful rhetoric? Why or why not?

Bonus: If you watched “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix or the Baldwin-Buckley debate, explain how these texts define “public discourse.”

Reading: Sacha Baron Cohen and in attachments bonus
