PWR 1MO: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Imagining Technology: The Rhetoric of Humans and Machines

This course explores the ways that technology has been imagined on the page and on the screen. We look at how a diverse group of sources from Cold War comics to Elon Musk's twitter account contribute to an ever-changing definition of 'technology.' And we consider how our hopes and anxieties about technology are represented in creative genres and media.

PWR 1MR: Writing & Rhetoric 1: "Did You Hear That?": The Rhetoric of Ghost Story

This class will explore varied aspects of the rhetoric of haunting, considering the supernatural, the psychoanalytical, the traumatic, and the simply hard to believe. nWe will examine how ghosts represent cultural values and fears, investigating the rhetorical elements of the ghost story: How are supernatural accounts constructed? How are they debunked? What strategies do writers use to prove the impossible, to convince the world that ghosts can exist? We will use our explorations of the supernatural to shape our ability to make nuanced arguments, to draw effectively from research materials, and to think critically about what we see and hear.

PWR 1RL: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Happiness

In this course, we will examine the notion of happiness — and some of its adjacent or "opposing" feelings, such as contentment, or depression and anger — and the rhetoric around it by studying an array of examples from various sources, such as books, websites, or films. Students will explore the contexts, motives, and ramifications of the representational strategies, while developing critical skills to analyze and articulate their research findings and arguments regarding topics of their choice.

PWR 1SC: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Banksy, B-girls, and the Rhetoric of Public Art

In the 21st century, public art is opening up: the 'hero-on-a-horse' is in decline, and hulkingly abstract metal sculptures are no longer commissioned for each urban plaza. In this class, we'll investigate together what public art might mean now. For example, should it made by a public or for a public, or in public places, or with public funding, or because of its political value in the public sphere? Who owns it, where does it belong, and what are its limits? Can public art be illegal, temporary, intangible, or created by people who don't even think of themselves as artists?
