PWR 2DHB: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Feel Me? The Rhetoric, Practice and Complication of Empathy

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course, we'll be examining what empathy is—both affective and cognitive—and what role it might, or might not, play in our everyday lives and in promoting ethical action. To do so, we'll study the psychological, biological, and neurological bases of empathy, its significance in philosophy, contemplative/religious practices and ethics, and its possibilities as a rhetorical strategy and a political tool.

PWR 2EE: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Once Upon a Cause: Producing Picture Books for Local Children

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Whether our favorite picture books as kids were timeless classics or new arrivals, whether they scared us or amused us, consoled us or challenged us, they moved and shaped us in profound ways. How could a few dozen pages and a few hundred words affect us so powerfully? Why did we want to hear and see and read our favorite picture books again and again? What was the secret to their magic? In this course you'll not only analyze that "magic" but will also collaborate closely with a group of classmates to create an original, compelling, and educationally appropriate picture book for second-graders in a local school.

PWR 2IY: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Many Faces of Sherlock: Race, Gender, Power, and the Rhetoric of the Detective

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this class we'll look at the ways detective fiction has expanded—with empowering results—to genders, ethnicities, and social backgrounds that mainstream representations of Holmes haven't traditionally represented. We'll consider, for example, the Botswanan women sleuths of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, the hoodie-wearing, super strong Luke Cage, and Japanese manga's Detective Conan. We'll ask how movements such as Afrofuturism and Género Negro combine the detective and speculative traditions with social commentary.

PWR 2JDC: Writing & Rhetoric 2: The Rhetoric of Collaboration: From Fandoms to Entrepreneurs

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this class, we will research how collaboration between and among producers and consumers shapes our society. For example, we'll look at how Harry Potter and Star Wars fans have influenced their franchises marketing and how advocates for open information (like WikiLeaks) have impacted the political climate. We'll debate the impacts of collaborative efforts and consider both the rewards and risks that arise from collaboration.

PWR 2JJ: Writing & Rhetoric 2: The Rhetoric of Language, Identity and Power

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this writing and speaking course, you'll consider the construction and negotiation of power and difference through language as it intersects with gender, sexuality, race, ability, and class.

PWR 2JPA: Writing & Rhetoric 2: How We Got Schooled: The Rhetoric of Literacy and Education

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course, we will look closely these learning processes.

We will research together the work of cultural critic Henry Giroux on global media as a force of education, poet and scholar bell hooks on classrooms as potential sites of both oppression and liberation, and education scholar Ken Robinson on creativity and schools.
