Lawrence J. Prelli is an associate professor of communication, chairperson of the Department of Communication, and an affiliate associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources at the University of New Hampshire. He is the author of A Rhetoric of Science: Inventing Scientific Discourse, which received the 1990 Eastern Communication Association's Everett Lee Hunt Award.
"To develop a sustained argument that rhetorics of display have become the dominant communication practices of our time, Larry Prelli presents wide-ranging case studies concerning symbolic actions from around the globe. Well grounded in the history of rhetoric and visual communication, the introduction and the ensuing seventeen essays concentrate on concealment and appearances ranging from the bodily presentation of self and social identity to the material culture of landscapes, statuary, and gravestones. Rhetorics of Display is a valuable resource for communication scholars and an exceptional invitation for further study."—Lester C. Olson, University of Pittsburgh, and author of Benjamin Franklin's Vision of American Community: A Study in Rhetorical Iconology
