Jennifer Brooke Sargent, J.D.
Visiting Associate Professor of Writing
I’m interested in how written, spoken and visual rhetoric about crime, law and ethics affects us as scholars and as citizens. I help my students see how rhetoric in these contexts can influence their perceptions and beliefs. I teach my students how to persuade their audiences with different rhetorical approaches, in-depth research, clear and concise writing and passion for their topics.
