Abstract
  • The Nobel Peace Prize is the most globally significant prize for peace, humanitarian and human rights activities; the only customary requirement when receiving the prize is to give a lecture discussing peace. Existing literature describes the history and politics of the Nobel Peace Prize, but the rhetoric of the Nobel lectures has not been heavily examined. This study is a rhetorical criticism using the method of genre description, in which the lectures of those laureates identified in the literature as "statesmen" -- primarily national leaders like Barack Obama -- are examined to find common forms, strategies and rhetorical substance. Two distinct sub-genres of statesmen-laureate rhetoric are identified: the first group uses the lecture to argue for strong international institutions, and the second group uses the lecture to enhance personal and national prestige.
