PhD Student Rachael Graham Lussos Published Article on Epideictic Rhetoric of Birthday Cakes

Rachael Graham Lussos published an article about the activist potential of multimodal compositions in Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics (JOMR). In "Have Your Epideictic Rhetoric, and Eat It, Too," Lussos describes a case study making birthday cakes for a charitable organization that hosts personalized birthday parties for children experiencing homelessness. Lussos claims that the non-digital multimodality of the cakes delivers a compelling activist and epideictic message.
