Rhetorica Scandinavica has functioned as a sower of academic seeds. As the journal has grown, rhetoric courses and programmes have multiplied across Scandinavia. The journal is the major source of native-language literature in the field, and articles frequently find a place on curricula. Thus, Rhetorica Scandinavica has had a significant impact on the study of rhetoric in the Scandinavian countries.
The 18 articles in this book are just a few highlights from 13 years – a total of over 225 peer-reviewed articles – of Rhetorica Scandinavica publications. They have been chosen to introduce some aspects of the study of rhetoric as it is performed in Scandinavia to a readership that is unfamiliar with the three Scandinavian languages.
