PWR 2CKA: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Rhetoric of Distraction

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this class we will explore how race and ethnicity in America have become subjects of personal negotiations and public perception. The readings will address various topics such as biracial and bicultural identity, acculturation, stereotyping and self-image.

PWR 2CL: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Crime, Media & Law: Critical Approaches to Violence

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Despite our fascination with extreme acts of violence, those who study the nature of illegality know the opposite to be true: Far from a problem of murder, crime is instead predominantly composed of everyday acts of offense that never garner police attention, such as tax evasion, the violation of environmental regulations, computer hacking, and recreational drug use. Critical criminologists term this kind of unprosecuted crime "crime's dark figure" because it flies below the radar of public awareness and judicial action. This course will take the divergence between cultural representations of crime and crime's "dark figure" as a point of departure.

PWR 2CR: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Communicating Science to the Public

As scientific knowledge and technology grow increasingly complex, the ability to explain science clearly and articulate science-based arguments to public audiences becomes more crucial, and more in demand. In this class, we will explore what makes written, spoken, and visual communication of science effective, compare the conventions of scholarly writing in the sciences to rhetorical strategies employed by popular science writers, and analyze problems with coverage of scientifically based issues in popular media and the promise and pitfalls of data visualization in conveying scientific information.

PWR 2CWA: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Global Games: Rhetoric of Sport for Development

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Sport has become "the" international relations and development concept of the new millennium. As a result, sport development is a source of much praise and criticism as scholars, activists, philanthropists, and journalists struggle to understand the rhetorical games at play in the global sport development policy landscape. As students deepen their awareness of rhetorical praxis and explore new modes as writers and communicators, they will survey seminal scholarship, case studies, and grassroots activist campaigns surrounding sport development in preparation for a sustained research project that addresses the sociopolitical implications of tying sport to development in the 21st century.

PWR 2CWB: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Hear/Say: The Art of Rhetorical Listening

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Why do we listen? How do we listen to learn, to understand? And to whom do we listen? And how does listening impact how we orient ourselves in the world? Rhetorical listening has been central to feminist rhetorical praxis, which has traditionally focused on the rescue, recovery, and (re)inscription of non-majority cultures and communities into the rhetorical tradition. In short, rhetorical listening asks us to reconsider the role listening plays, and the values which we ascribe to listening, in processes of knowledge construction inside and outside the academy.
