Torture: What is the fascination with this arcane activity? The very nature torture is that it speaks to us viscerally—a prolonged sensory activity that captivates its audience with images of pain and misery. It is something society looks down upon yet simultaneously has an almost obsessive interest in viewing, dissecting and in some cases applying.
This panel seeks to present theories and analysis regarding the use of rhetorical methods in history, literature, art and film to rally the masses in support of the very activities that society collectively deems heinous.
