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

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.

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. As a result, colleges and universities will look to promote a player for the award. 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.
