Andrea’s Facilitation and Discussions on Material Spaces—A Note

Physicality around us: materiality that is rhetorical

Pictures relevant to the readings, pulpits:

panopticon; London eye; fountains; the Free Speech Zone; Hong Kong; and so on

The Practice of Everyday Life


rhetorical terms: difference between place and space; space is practiced place; social dimensions of space; 

Space not met: people not following the rules or not fulfilling the expectations in certain social spaces

Why rhetoricians should study space? Do you think space is rhetorical? Of course.

The way they shape public memory. Classroom space, digital space, and so on.

Part of the problem is analyzing the space without the materiality it embraces. Symbols, images, and so on. How spaces function rhetorically: they make arguments, constrain their rhetors in some ways, and  have impact on rhetorical situations.
