Christopher Adamczyk

Assistant Professor 10 Months Email Knapp Hall, Room 13

Dr. Adamczyk is a lifelong student of rhetoric whose research is concerned with the rhetoric and philosophy of technology, public memory, and American public discourse. He is especially interested in how public debate and discussion about science and technology impact what kinds of technologies are invented and how existing technologies are used. He also has a deep love for the history of rhetoric—ancient or otherwise.
 

As a teacher, Dr. Adamczyk enjoys using speech and writing as tools to encourage students to engage with and reflect upon contemporary events. He believes that learning to articulate your own opinions and to participate in debate are vital civic virtues.
