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 2KM: Writing & Rhetoric 2: A Planet on the Edge: The Rhetoric of Sustainable Energy

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Sea-level rise, the halting of major ocean circulatory currents, outbreaks of superstorms leading to floods and droughts - can an energy revolution still save a planet on the edge? This class explores the intricacies of sustainable energy, focusing on the myths, slogans, and rhetorical narratives that surround these debates. For example, is environmentalism inherently at odds with economic prosperity? Does living an environmentally conscious lifestyle require personal sacrifice and suffering? How does rhetorical framing affect the research, implementation, and public perception of new technologies in the field of sustainable energy?
