Course Description for Writing, Rhetoric, and Community
Writing, Rhetoric, and Community
Description: In this course we will consider the ways in which citizens, activists, scholars, teachers, and students use writing and rhetoric in public contexts. We will begin the course by exploring theories of the public sphere, publics, and counterpublics, and we will discuss how these theories intersect with the work of rhetoric as students read and write the rhetorics of specific communities.
Repeatability: Students may take this course for up to six (6) credits.
