PWR 1A: Introduction to Writing at Stanford: Rhetorics of Popular Culture

Popular culture studies breaks down barriers between so-called "low" and "high" culture and uses the textual practices of everyday people to understand our social world. As a reaction to the "high culture" mediums of canonical literature and museum-worthy art, popular culture studies takes the perspective that everyday people, their practices, media, communication, and principles afford provocative insights into our social worlds. PWR1A students will study the rhetorical features and functions of popular culture, from young adult literature, to music, film, games, social media, and comics in order to develop our critical reading, writing, and research skills in preparation for academic work in both PWR1 and PWR2 as well as other writing and research intensive courses. Readings, writing, and other activities prompt students to consider the relationship between language, rhetoric and popular culture in an aim to interrogate popular culture broader social values and assumptions. Enrollment exclusive to incoming Stanford freshman student athletes. PWR1A classes are small, workshop-style meetings that encourage extensive interaction between students and instructors. PWR1A does not meet the Stanford first-year writing requirement.

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 1EE: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Prowling Toward Certainty: Exploration as Argument

In a culture that rewards people who write and speak with conviction, ambivalence often seems like a personal shortcoming that must be remedied with certainty. Isn't it better to be confident and decisive? Writing teachers and textbooks tend to reinforce this view, insisting that students present a strong thesis as soon as possible. Even if you address counterarguments and offer concessions, your argument should override if not demolish them in the end. Even if you feel deeply ambivalent about a topic during your research, your final draft must demonstrate unwavering conviction: you slam your fist and make your point. nnRecent research questions the value of unwavering conviction. For example, management scholar Christina Ting Fong notes, "The results from two laboratory experiments demonstrate that individuals experiencing emotional ambivalence are better at recognizing unusual relationships between concepts, therefore showing an ability believed to be important to organizational creativity." nnWhat if, instead of sweeping your ambivalence under the rug, you tried to embrace it in your research and foreground it in your writing? Is ambivalence always a liability? What advantages can be found in the deep, risky waters of uncertainty? How do scientists, social scientists, and humanists regard ambivalence? What do ambivalent texts look and feel like? Can they move and persuade us? Is it possible to map and tap into a rhetoric of ambivalence? nnIn this course, we'll explore such questions in an attempt to understand the relationship between ambivalence and persuasion. We'll analyze and discuss the ways that writers such as Annie Dillard, Stephen Jay Gould, and Michael Pollan not only engage their ambivalence but weave it into their prose. Most importantly, we'll explore how you can develop rhetorical strategies and habits of mind to achieve results in your own analytical and persuasive writing. We'll study how to craft compelling arguments that do fuller justice to complex emotions and ideas.

PWR 1IF: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Language and Social Identity in America

Language and social identity are closely intertwined. Have you ever noticed that you change the way you speak to present a particular social identity? For example, have you ever switched between dialects or languages to show alignment with certain social groups or mark your 'in-group' status? Because language is flexible (and somewhat controllable), it can be used as a resource to create and index identity. However, given its flexible nature, criticizing someone's language often becomes a more socially acceptable way of attacking someone than something that seems like bald-faced racism/sexism/homophobia, etc. In this course we'll explore this complex link between identity and language.nnThis course explores the way language and social identity are defined, discussed, and debated in America, and the assumptions this rhetoric presents about race, class, education and other social identities more broadly. Together, we¿ll consider: What's it like to grow up monolingual versus bilingual or multilingual? What role do our ethnicity and/or race play in how our language skills are perceived? What role do language attitudes and stereotypes play in influencing our daily lives? What role does the media play? How is language discussed in politics? Students will be able to work on a research project related to social identity and language on a topic of their choice.

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.

We will ask how arguments about disability incorporate concepts such as neurodiversity, chronic illness, and other invisible conditions.

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 1LPG: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Power Lines and Water Pipes: Writing The Global City Through Infrastructure

What can power lines, water pipes, and fibre optic cables tell us about how different groups of people navigate life in global cities? While such infrastructures are often considered to be the mere "background" of socio-cultural life in cities, this course will center on them and their rhetorical contexts in order to explore how opportunity and inequality are imagined and discussed in urban spaces. We will contemplate how knowledge, relations of power, and practices of governance work within the framework of deep rhetorical analysis of urban infrastructures.

PWR 1MC: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Oppositional Rhetoric: Resistance and Public Protest

In 2010, the University of Michigan hosted an international conference entitled "Against Health," which questioned how health has become a moralizing system dictating how people should behave and make decisions. In 2014, the Whitney Biennial selected Jackie Wang's anti-racist essay "Against Innocence" to be sold as part of their elite art exhibition. But how can one be "against health" or "against innocence"? These titles pose riddles for their readers. They use a strategy of oppositional rhetoric to challenge foundational assumptions in provocative ways. How can we as writers contend with the challenges at the heart of such rhetoric?

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.

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 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?

PWR 1VL: Writing & Rhetoric 1: It's All Relative: The Rhetoric of the Modern American Family

The September 2017 issue of Interview Magazine features Kim Kardashian West dressed as Jackie Kennedy on the cover, along with her daughter, North. In the article, the magazine calls Kardashian West's popular reality show, a rooted-in-real life mirror to what the American family looks like today, bringing up topics such as race, gender, and more recently, trans identity. As early as 50 years ago, it would have been nearly impossible for a magazine to feature a white woman, especially one as notorious as Kim Kardashian, on its cover with her biracial, black daughter. So how did the mirror of the American Family change from the Mad Men ideal of a white, wealthy, suburban, nuclear family to a sprawling mega-family who document every moment of their lives for television screens? And is it even accurate to call the Kardashians the mirror? Who is left out of this reflection? nnIn this class, we will explore how representations of American families reflect shifting trends on the national level, including increasingly nuanced understandings of race, gender, sexuality, and citizenship. Through engagements with various texts (television, films, articles, advertisements) we will practice making nuanced written arguments about the rhetoric of families as we work toward the final assignment, a research-based argument. We will analyze several topics in class to develop and improve analytic and argumentative writing skills, from debates over LGBTQ+ parenting to mixed race families and generational conflicts while asking, what makes a family? Which aspects of families are represented as ideal? And what do those ideals say about issues beyond the family?
