Rhetoric Of Professional Correspondence: Origins Of Contemporary Practice, Verlane D. Edwards Jan 1992

Rhetoric Of Professional Correspondence: Origins Of Contemporary Practice, Verlane D. Edwards

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In conjunction with the increased interest in rhetorical studies, and as a result of recent research surveys which cite the centrality of letter writing in professional communication, letter writing has been receiving increased scholarly attention. A significant portion of this attention consists of complaints about the current state of textbook instruction in business correspondence. For example, Sam Dragga argues that the traditional attention to classification of letters and teaching the characteristics of those classifications allows writers to avoid addressing the "complexity of specific rhetorical situations".

Promoting The Heisman Trophy: Coorientation As It Applies To Promoting Heisman Trophy Candidates, Stephen Paul Warnke

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The Heisman Trophy is college football's most coveted individual award. While it is given to an individual player, the benefits from winning the Heisman can be felt throughout the program of the player's school.

Some schools, relying on their traditions or media exposure, will not promote their candidate, while other schools with less name recognition and exposure will conduct an extensive campaign. My thesis is a study of how selected colleges and universities promote their candidates for college football's Heisman Trophy.

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Questionnaire data from 200 managers were analyzed.
