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

What does consumer culture say about the larger culture? PWR 1A uses questions about consumer culture -- music, movies, sports-- for writing and researching. How do video games teach engineering and physics? How do detective and courtroom dramas lead to discussions about DNA analysis? We look at consumer culture as cultural critics, using ideas about technology, society, and economics to analyze human behavior. We'll study theories about media to research how everyday artifacts are signs of our culture. We¿ll write an analytical essay about cultural commentary or a commercial space, learn about library research to explore topics of your choice, and share our research. We¿ll work together as a group to practice collaboration and project-based learning. 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 1AK: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Humor

In this class we will explore the how and why of humor through readings, classroom discussion, rhetorical analysis, and, most importantly, through writing, and examine the ways that humor, as a rhetorical tool, is deployed in written and oral texts.

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 1BH: Writing & Rhetoric 1: A Seat at the Table-Rhetorics of Belonging

PWR 1 courses focus on developing writing and revision strategies for rhetorical analysis and research-based arguments that draw on multiple sources. This class takes as its theme the symbolism of pulling up a chair to a table to represent a sense of belonging and inclusion. What happens when you get ¿a seat¿ that you've pursued for a long time? This course asks you to engage with feelings of inclusion/exclusion by drawing from your own experiences of negotiating and fighting for your seat. For course videos and full descriptions, see https://vcapwr-catalog.stanford.edu. Enrollment is handled by the PWR office.

PWR 1BK: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Writing What You Eat: The Rhetoric of Food

In this course, we will focus on the rhetoric of food in order to explore how our relationship to what we eat is reflected in writing about ourselves, our society, and our world. Essays, recipes, blog posts, and newspaper articles are some of the genres we will examine in order to explore how issues of identity, community, ethics, and wellness can be expressed in food writing. How does what we choose to eat reflect on how we see ourselves and the world around us? What responsibilities do we have, if any, as consumers of food in one of the world's richest nations?
