PWR 1VK: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Rhetorics of Trauma

Spurred, in part, by the events of September 11th and the plight of American service members returning from combat experiences in the Middle East, the public's gaze has been drawn toward the concept of trauma. This course considers the rhetorics of trauma, that is, how survivors of traumatic incidents, witnesses, psychologists, doctors, civil and military leaders, politicians, and the general public interpret trauma. These different understandings of trauma compete for social awareness and limited resources. For more information about PWR 1, see https://undergrad.stanford.edu/programs/pwr/courses/pwr-1.

PWR 1VL: Writing & Rhetoric 1: It's All Relative: The Rhetoric of the Modern American Family

The September 2017 issue of Interview Magazine features Kim Kardashian West dressed as Jackie Kennedy on the cover, along with her daughter, North. In the article, the magazine calls Kardashian West's popular reality show, a rooted-in-real life mirror to what the American family looks like today, bringing up topics such as race, gender, and more recently, trans identity. As early as 50 years ago, it would have been nearly impossible for a magazine to feature a white woman, especially one as notorious as Kim Kardashian, on its cover with her biracial, black daughter. So how did the mirror of the American Family change from the Mad Men ideal of a white, wealthy, suburban, nuclear family to a sprawling mega-family who document every moment of their lives for television screens? And is it even accurate to call the Kardashians the mirror? Who is left out of this reflection? nnIn this class, we will explore how representations of American families reflect shifting trends on the national level, including increasingly nuanced understandings of race, gender, sexuality, and citizenship. Through engagements with various texts (television, films, articles, advertisements) we will practice making nuanced written arguments about the rhetoric of families as we work toward the final assignment, a research-based argument. We will analyze several topics in class to develop and improve analytic and argumentative writing skills, from debates over LGBTQ+ parenting to mixed race families and generational conflicts while asking, what makes a family? Which aspects of families are represented as ideal? And what do those ideals say about issues beyond the family?

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course we will delve into the fascinating world of DIY (do it yourself) movements.

PWR 2BRB: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Eurekas and Epiphanies: The Rhetoric of Inspiration

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course, we will inquire into how, exactly, inspiration works. Where do good ideas come from? What fosters creativity?

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 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.
