PWR 1IF: Writing & Rhetoric 1: The Rhetoric of Language and Social Identity in America

Language and social identity are closely intertwined. Have you ever noticed that you change the way you speak to present a particular social identity? For example, have you ever switched between dialects or languages to show alignment with certain social groups or mark your 'in-group' status? Because language is flexible (and somewhat controllable), it can be used as a resource to create and index identity. However, given its flexible nature, criticizing someone's language often becomes a more socially acceptable way of attacking someone than something that seems like bald-faced racism/sexism/homophobia, etc. In this course we'll explore this complex link between identity and language.nnThis course explores the way language and social identity are defined, discussed, and debated in America, and the assumptions this rhetoric presents about race, class, education and other social identities more broadly. Together, we¿ll consider: What's it like to grow up monolingual versus bilingual or more »

Together, we¿ll consider: What's it like to grow up monolingual versus bilingual or multilingual? What role do our ethnicity and/or race play in how our language skills are perceived? What role do language attitudes and stereotypes play in influencing our daily lives? What role does the media play? How is language discussed in politics? Students will be able to work on a research project related to social identity and language on a topic of their choice.

PWR 1JC: Writing & Rhetoric 1: Modern Family: The Rhetoric of Sex and Reproduction

The issue of reproduction provides a powerful rhetorical lens for looking critically and incisively into our own assumptions about race, gender, class, sexuality, power, rights, justice, "nature," technology, and modernity. With an intention to challenge assumptions, we will explore issues through a variety of perspectives. For example, we will explore theoretical debates over the "family" and its viability as a vehicle for securing recognition and rights, place liberal feminist ideas like "bodily autonomy" in conversation with complicatedly contradictory concepts like natal endangerment or father's rights in abortion and family planning, investigate legal and medical histories of eugenics, sterilization abuse, and practices of coercive and disciplinary contraception, and analyze rhetoric associated with different forms of commodified reproduction, from black women's forced "manufacture" of slave labor to practices of transnational gestational surrogacy.
