PWR 1MO: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Imagining Technology: The Rhetoric of Humans and Machines

This course explores the ways that technology has been imagined on the page and on the screen. We look at how a diverse group of sources from Cold War comics to Elon Musk's twitter account contribute to an ever-changing definition of 'technology.' And we consider how our hopes and anxieties about technology are represented in creative genres and media.

PWR 1PB: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Supreme Court Rhetoric

Applying a rhetorical framework, we will discuss and analyze historical cases such as Barron v Baltimore (1833), in which the Court found that federal Bill of Rights guarantees were not binding upon states, as well as contemporary Supreme Court issues such as the debate surrounding the status of Roe v. Wade under the recently re-configured Roberts Court. We'll also discuss and examine the rhetoric of "amicus curiae" briefs, editorials about Court opinions, and pertinent lower court decisions.

PWR 1RL: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Happiness

In this course, we will examine the notion of happiness — and some of its adjacent or "opposing" feelings, such as contentment, or depression and anger — and the rhetoric around it by studying an array of examples from various sources, such as books, websites, or films. Students will explore the contexts, motives, and ramifications of the representational strategies, while developing critical skills to analyze and articulate their research findings and arguments regarding topics of their choice.

PWR 1SC: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Banksy, B-girls, and the Rhetoric of Public Art

In the 21st century, public art is opening up: the 'hero-on-a-horse' is in decline, and hulkingly abstract metal sculptures are no longer commissioned for each urban plaza. In this class, we'll investigate together what public art might mean now. For example, should it made by a public or for a public, or in public places, or with public funding, or because of its political value in the public sphere? Who owns it, where does it belong, and what are its limits? Can public art be illegal, temporary, intangible, or created by people who don't even think of themselves as artists?

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?
