PWR 1AK: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Humor

In this class we will explore the how and why of humor through readings, classroom discussion, rhetorical analysis, and, most importantly, through writing, and examine the ways that humor, as a rhetorical tool, is deployed in written and oral texts.

PWR 1AM: Writing & Rhetoric 1: King Tut's Tomb, Penicillin, and Lilliputians: The Rhetoric of Discovery

In this course, as we investigate the power of the archetype of discovery, we also critically consider what these stories hide or gloss over. How revolutionary are most discoveries after all? What perspectives are left out? What is a truthful way to portray new insights? How do we capture popular attention but include the broader context of experiment and expeditions? You will gain a complex understanding of how writing and rhetoric both structure and hide knowledge from the audience, and how you can use this in your writing in both persuasive and responsible ways.

PWR 1AN: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Identity Cultivated Through a Hip-Hop World

This course seeks to explore the ways that we read and write ourselves into a world that is engrossed in Hip-Hop culture by asking: What does it mean to live in a world where Hip-Hop permeates every aspect of society? How can Hip-Hop culture be used to understand the rhetoric that is used in broader society in reference to both this moment in history and the culture itself? By engaging both Hip-Hop artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Manij, and artists that operate in a Hip-Hop world like Beyoncé, this course investigates the ways that we write ourselves into a world engrossed in Hip-Hop culture that denies the humanity and value of its members.

PWR 1BK: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Writing What You Eat: The Rhetoric of Food

In this course, we will focus on the rhetoric of food in order to explore how our relationship to what we eat is reflected in writing about ourselves, our society, and our world. Essays, recipes, blog posts, and newspaper articles are some of the genres we will examine in order to explore how issues of identity, community, ethics, and wellness can be expressed in food writing. How does what we choose to eat reflect on how we see ourselves and the world around us? What responsibilities do we have, if any, as consumers of food in one of the world's richest nations?

PWR 1JC: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Modern Family: The Rhetoric of Sex and Reproduction

The issue of reproduction provides a powerful rhetorical lens for looking critically and incisively into our own assumptions about race, gender, class, sexuality, power, rights, justice, "nature," technology, and modernity. With an intention to challenge assumptions, we will explore issues through a variety of perspectives. For example, we will explore theoretical debates over the "family" and its viability as a vehicle for securing recognition and rights, place liberal feminist ideas like "bodily autonomy" in conversation with complicatedly contradictory concepts like natal endangerment or father's rights in abortion and family planning, investigate legal and medical histories of eugenics, sterilization abuse, and practices of coercive and disciplinary contraception, and analyze rhetoric associated with different forms of commodified reproduction, from black women's forced "manufacture" of slave labor to practices of transnational gestational surrogacy.
