Citizenship has long been a central topic among educators, philosophers, and political theorists. Using the phrase "rhetorical citizenship" as a unifying perspective, Rhetorical Citizenship and Public Deliberation aims to develop an understanding of citizenship as a discursive phenomenon, arguing that discourse is not prefatory to real action but in many ways constitutive of civic engagement. To accomplish this, the book brings together, in a cross-disciplinary effort, contributions by scholars in fields that rarely intersect.For the most part, discussions of citizenship have focused on aspects that are central to the "liberal" tradition of social thought--that is, questions of the freedoms and rights of citizens and groups. This collection gives voice to a "republican" conception of citizenship. Seeing participation and debate as central to being a citizen, this tradition looks back to the Greek city-states and republican Rome. Citizenship, in this sense of the word, is rhetorical citizenship. Rhetoric is thus at the core of being a citizen.Aside from the editors, the contributors are John Adams, Paula Cossart, Jonas Gabrielsen, Jette Barnholdt Hansen, Kasper Mller Hansen, Sine Nrholm Just, Ildik Kaposi, William Keith, Bart van Klink, Marie Lund Klujeff, Manfred Kraus, Oliver W.
