Political Eulogies and Public Funerals

The political eulogy is one of the most common hybrid genres in political speech. A political eulogy may be delivered by a public figure at the time of a significant death or disaster with deliberative as well as ceremonial affects.

There are also from time to time public funerals, where the deceased is someone whose life must be marked publically due to the magnitude of their public ethos.
