Populism is on the rise and the European project is in jeopardy. What role does rhetoric play in all of this? The workshop will use a political speech as a point of departure to embark on a critical reflection about the past and to express hopes and wishes for the future. The different parts of the workshop consist of the analysis of the speech, followed by a discussion between the students and a brainstorming session to discuss the topics that the students will address in their own speeches. The different speeches are presented at the end of the day. The story of Europe is best told by its citizens. What do you have to say?
This workshop takes place in two parts 11:00 – 12:30 am and 2:00 – 3:30 pm.
