Biography:

Bill Bettler was nourished in the small-town experience of Middle America by parents who are both linguists and who placed emphasis on the life of the mind and travel.

His natural interest in music and culture has led him to consider the impact of the popular media as a special source of symbol production, capable of creating and imparting significant meaning to audiences when they are exposed to them or simply enjoy them.

Bettler's wife, Donna, is the love of his life and he considers his daughter, Christina, is the most intelligent, gifted, and hilarious child of all time. Bettler also enjoys playing the guitar and reading.

Education:

B.A., Oberlin College
M.A., Ph.D., Purdue University

Teaching Areas / Expertise / Specializations:

Bettler teaches rhetorical criticism and theory as they apply to the popular media, especially music, film and television. His dissertation is a rhetorical critique of the music of singer-songwriter Jackson Browne.

He is also interested in the way artists use setting as a rhetorical device. Bettler teaches courses in mass media, persuasion and media criticism. All of these are grounded in rhetorical theory, especially Aristotle and Kenneth Burke.
