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.
