Barry Brummett (Ph.D. University of Minnesota) taught at Purdue University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee before coming to the University of Texas-Austin. His scholarly areas include: rhetoric and popular culture, media criticism, apocalyptic rhetoric, and theories and methods of Kenneth Burke. Brummett's most recent, ongoing interests are in the rhetoric of popular culture: how do television, film, music, magazines, sports, and other experiences of everyday living influence our thoughts, beliefs, and actions? He is the author of Rhetorical Homologies: Form, Culture, Experience and Rhetorical Dimensions of Popular Culture (University of Alabama) and Contemporary Apocalyptic Rhetoric, The World and How We Describe It:nbsp; Rhetorics of Reality, Representation, Simulation, and Rhetoric of Machine Aesthetics (Praeger) and the author, coauthor, or editor of several collections or textbooks, among them, Reading Rhetorical Theory (Harcourt Brace), Landmark Essays: Kenneth Burke (Hermagoras Press), and Public Communication, 2/e (Harper & Row). He sits on numerous journal editorial boards and is the 2001 recipient of the NCA Douglas W. Ehninger Distinguished Rhetorical Scholar Award.
