PWR 1JPA: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Liberal Arts Education

Is higher education primarily a pathway to a career, or is it designed for students to learn about themselves and the human experience? Is it possible for higher education to achieve both of these goals? In this course we will consider the concept of liberal arts education and address how college should prepare its students for adult life. By working with education theorists as wide-ranging as Diane Ravitch, Ken Robinson, William Deresiewicz, and Stanley Fish, we will frame the debate and set the stage for your own investigation.

We will explore Lysenkoism, the politicization of agricultural science in the Soviet Union, drawing parallels to modern day climate change science, and we will dive into the research on urban tree coverage to see how plants can be a marker for social inequality For course videos and full descriptions, see https://vcapwr-catalog.stanford.edu.
