Actio Capital: The Non-verbal Resources of Rhetoric
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.
2013 (English)In: Verbal and Visual Rhetoric in a Media World: Rhetoric in Society / [ed] Hilde van Belle, Paul Gillaerts, Baldwin van Gorp, Dorien van de Mieroop, Kris Rutten, Amsterdam, Netherland: Leiden University Press , 2013, p. 165-177Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In the article a new concept, “Actio Capital” is introduced. Actio refers to how a speech is delivered in a public setting. The concept is intended to provide an overall description and understanding of a speaker’s resources with regard to actio. Actio Capital is a theoretical model that describes the development of a speaker’s actio from actio resource, to asset, and finally to Actio Capital. The model is inspired by Pierre Bourdieu’s concepts of habitus and symbolic capital along with the analysis of both classical and modern handbooks and recent research about actio, as well as an empirical study of university lecturers.
