PWR 1LF: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The New Normal: The Rhetoric of Disability

In this class we will move beyond definitions of disability as "abnormality" or "deviance" to explore how advances in science, technology, medicine, and culture have transformed our understanding of what constitutes a "normal' human body. We will ask how arguments about disability incorporate concepts such as neurodiversity, chronic illness, and other invisible conditions. At the same time, we will study how contemporary perspectives on disability interact with issues such as technology, metaphors of the prosthesis, cultural constructions of the body, and even what it means to be human.

PWR 1LO: Writing & Rhetoric 1: What Are We Trying to Sustain? Rhetoric of Nature's Values and Services

With increasing rates of environmental impacts from human activity, communities across the planet face challenges for sustainability. Given the many benefits we derive from nature - from cultural and spiritual benefits, to basic goods like food and water, to economic benefits from the use of natural resources - defining what we value and what we wish to sustain is a top priority. This class will examine diverse perspectives on the value and services we derive from nature and consider challenges for balancing multiple uses of nature in the context of sustainable resource management and conservation.

PWR 1MGD: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Who speaks for nature? Rhetorics of environmentalism and justice

The last hundred years have seen organized environmentalism become a major force on the world stage. But the environment is still essentially contested. Who is at risk from environmental problems? What environmental problems should be prioritized? And who should be able to speak out as authentic protectors of the earth? In this course, we examine the ways that environmental and conservation writers from classic environmental writers to contemporary activists talk about nature to see how close readings of their work highlight fundamental disagreements about justice and politics in societies across the globe.
