LD Winter Workshop – Substance: Rethinking Applications
When: Monday, Jan 11, 2020 – 7:00pm – 9:00pm CT
Cost: $25 members/$40 nonmembers
There are more applications to explore in Lincoln Douglas Debate than just philosophy. From historical examples, to case law; from classical logic to modern legislation, there is an abundance of substance you can use to maximize your Lincoln Douglas performance, if it is used properly. In LD Debate, it’s easy to forget why we use applications. I think we often look at examples as obligatory additions to LD contentions, or even as appeals to judge bias. If we view Lincoln-Douglas applications through this lens, we lose sight of what they truly are: nuanced tools to effectively communicate sound logic.
Caleb Sampson wants to help the debater rediscover the best ways to use applications in LD Debate. Join him for a one-night workshop – Substance: Rethinking Applications in Lincoln Douglas Debate. This workshop will analyze the most effective ways to use philosophy, historical examples, case law, legislation, and analogies in Lincoln Douglas Debate. By doing so, you’ll not only learn how to perfect your cases, but also how to refute others when they abuse examples. This workshop will take place on Monday, January 11th.
