PWR 2AB: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Makers, Crafters, Hackers: The Rhetoric of DIY

Prerequisite: PWR 1. In this course we will delve into the fascinating world of DIY (do it yourself) movements. You will examine the values, politics and ethics of DIY, such as what making has to do with empowerment and resistance, or whether our ideas of making and makers are gendered or attached to assumptions about class, ethnicity and ideology.

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? And how do we inspire ourselves and others to follow through on those ideas? We¿ll address these questions from many disciplinary angles, including the history of theories of genius and creativity, the uses of spiritual and literary ¿epiphany,¿ and recent psychology research into growth mindsets.

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 2CR: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Communicating Science

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.

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.
