Charlotte Dash, English/Professional Writing

Charlotte Dash, a Rhetoric and Professional Writing concentrator, has recently received a CURIO program grant (The Collegiate Undergraduate Research and Inquiry Opportunities) from The Student Research Advisory Council at Longwood University.

As part of the CURIO program, Charlotte will complete a research project with the prospective goal of developing and designing an intercultural guidebook, synthesizing the classical rhetorical knowledge gained from the Greek rhetorical tradition (i.e., Aristotle’s work entitled, Rhetoric, 3rd century B.C.) as well as newly emerging perspectives on the Turkish rhetorical tradition. This guidebook will contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of rhetoric and provide a review of the principles of an effective use of language with a much wider applicability in a globalized world.

Congratulations, Charlotte!
