March 26, 2014 | Kim Jeyaraj


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. –Dr. Joy Qualls, assistant professor of communication at Evangel University, recently presented a paper at the National Communication Association (NCA) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Qualls was part of a four-person panel that focused on theology as rhetorical criticism.

The NCA is the largest national professional organization for scholars of communication. They are celebrating their centennial year in 2014.

Qualls’ paper was titled “Theology Belongs to the Artists as Much as the Apologists: Rhetorical Criticism in Walter Brueggemann’s The Prophetic Imagination.” The paper explained how Brueggemann’s book could be used as a means of analyzing religious and political communication. She also examined the role of the Christian in speaking prophetically to the culture and the power structure of the world.

“I am passionate about this subject because it allows me to explore my appreciation for both religious and political rhetoric and the intersection between the two,” Qualls said.

For additional information, contact Dr. Joy Qualls at quallsj@evangel.edu or by calling (417) 865-2815, ext. 8422.
