The Center for Democratic Deliberation offers an annual Kenneth Burke Prize in Rhetoric, awarded to the best essay written by a graduate student in one of Penn State’s liberal arts disciplines on the subject of rhetoric in its many forms—as historical, critical, or theoretical discourse.

The CDD is pleased to announce the 2015 winner of the Kenneth Burke Prize in Rhetoric, Jeremy Cox.  He is a doctoral student in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences and won the prize with his essay entitled “'They Died the Spartan’s Death': Historical Allusion, The Alamo, and Tropes of Public Memory."
