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 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.

PWR 2DHB: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Feel Me? The Rhetoric, Practice and Complication of Empathy

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course, we'll be examining what empathy is—both affective and cognitive—and what role it might, or might not, play in our everyday lives and in promoting ethical action. To do so, we'll study the psychological, biological, and neurological bases of empathy, its significance in philosophy, contemplative/religious practices and ethics, and its possibilities as a rhetorical strategy and a political tool.

PWR 2EE: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Once Upon a Cause: Producing Picture Books for Local Children

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Whether our favorite picture books as kids were timeless classics or new arrivals, whether they scared us or amused us, consoled us or challenged us, they moved and shaped us in profound ways. How could a few dozen pages and a few hundred words affect us so powerfully? Why did we want to hear and see and read our favorite picture books again and again? What was the secret to their magic? In this course you'll not only analyze that "magic" but will also collaborate closely with a group of classmates to create an original, compelling, and educationally appropriate picture book for second-graders in a local school.

PWR 2GAW: Writing & Rhetoric 2: 'Don't Stand so Close to Me' : Cross-cultural Communication

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Despite universal attributes such as facial expressions and emotions, humans also have culturally based assumptions, values, and beliefs - from the shared assumptions and collectivist views of high-context cultures to the explicit and highly articulated rhetoric of more individualistic and low-context groups. Our course will explore rhetorical challenges in verbal and nonverbal communication across cultures. We'll consider not only language and argument but also proxemics - determined spatial distance between people - as well as eye contact and gestures.

PWR 2IY: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Many Faces of Sherlock: Race, Gender, Power, and the Rhetoric of the Detective

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this class we'll look at the ways detective fiction has expanded—with empowering results—to genders, ethnicities, and social backgrounds that mainstream representations of Holmes haven't traditionally represented. We'll consider, for example, the Botswanan women sleuths of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, the hoodie-wearing, super strong Luke Cage, and Japanese manga's Detective Conan. We'll ask how movements such as Afrofuturism and Género Negro combine the detective and speculative traditions with social commentary.
