PWR 2MGD: Writing & Rhetoric 2: Silicon Valley and the Future of Work: Rhetoric of Labor Utopias and Dystopias

We live in the heart of Silicon Valley, an engine that promises¿or threatens¿to disrupt the way that national and global economies are organized. In this writing and speaking course, you¿ll explore how a range of critics and analysts imagine the future of work. Does all this point to a coming utopia? To a dystopia? Works from technologists, sociologists, economists, anthropologists, historians, activists and more will help answer these questions. We¿ll read those who embrace these changes and those who don¿t; we will analyze the predictions of various bright-eyed techno-optimists and steely-eyed doomsayers, from Silicon Valley insiders like Elon Musk and Bill Gates to radical academics and activists. We¿ll pick through what¿s really new about Silicon Valley¿s effects on the future of labor¿and discuss in what ways we¿re seeing the continuation of longstanding trends. For course videos and full descriptions, see https://vcapwr-catalog.stanford.edu. Enrollment is handled by the PWR office. Prerequisite: PWR 1.
