emerging field. It is committed to assume a multidisciplinary viewpoint and
summon up developing domains within contemporary rhetoric in order to offer
the reader a comprehensive assessment of Media's persuasive dimension.

practice of Media Studies as well as evidencing the new possibilities Media
introduced in rhetoric and persuasion processes.

starting point to the study of the many forms by which media takes us to
