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.
