The Agora

A Place for Rhetoric and Sophistry


Welcome to the Agora, the website of Richard Johnson-Sheehan, a Professor of Rhetoric at Purdue University. At Purdue, I direct the Introductory Composition program. This site is a rather self-absorbed inventory of my professional interests.

You will find various interesting items here. The list to the left shows a variety of different interest areas that can be pursued. Pages, essays, and links will be added as they come to mind.

If you would like to contact Professor Johnson-Sheehan, please e-mail him at Enjoy.

This website is designed for no particular purpose. If you have comments, please send them to Professor Johnson-Sheehan. If you have complaints, keep them to yourself. He's just not in the mood. And, if you have read this far, you really need to get something more important to do.
