PWR 194DH: Topics in Writing and Rhetoric: Empathy: A Rhetorical Tool In The Fight For Social Change?

Does not fulfill NSC requirement. In this course, we will interrogate empathy as an ethical model and a rhetorical strategy for effecting social change. Partisanship is at an all time high in the US, being as ingrained and divisive now as race. And a 2015 poll showed that almost six in ten Americans--heavy majorities of both blacks and whites--believe that "race relations are generally bad, and nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse." Stanford's campus has been no stranger to these controversies--divestment from Palestine and fossil fuels, Slow Down for Michael Brown, sexual assault punishments, and accusations of anti-Jewish bias in election endorsements. So, do we need an "empathy revolution," or should we be "against empathy" or is it more complicated? To get at these questions, we will read about empathy from the perspective of morality, neuroscience, social movements and rhetoric; and practice compassion meditation. Finally, with the course readings and discussions in mind, you will write about a social change issue you believe might, or might not, benefit from an empathetic framework.

PWR 194KD: Topics in Writing and Rhetoric: Technology and Human Values

Pining for a job in Google X but a little afraid of what disrupting the next social system will do to humans when all is said and done? Unsure where the real conversation is happening at Stanford about how to think more carefully and thoughtfully about the tech we are being trained to make? Curious to know what underlying common ground might link fuzzies with techies, humanists with engineers, scientists with philosophers? These are some of the issues we¿ll address in this seminar. You will be able to choose your own current topic¿drones, tech and medicine, Big Data, Cloud applications, AI and consciousness, cybersecurity, tech and the law¿for which you will choose readings and write a seminar paper and then co-lead discussion. The class goals are to know better the ethical value of one¿s tech work and research and to be able to express to scientists and non-scientists alike the ways in which this work contributes to the greater human good (beyond strict convenience or short-term profit). Prerequisite: first two levels of the writing requirement or equivalent transfer credit. For topics, see https://undergrad.stanford.edu/programs/pwr/courses/advanced-pwr-courses.
