Course Description

We live our lives through networks of texts, both printed and digital. This course takes a rhetorical perspective to explore how written texts provide more than just information: they perform important cultural actions in contemporary civic life. Students examine the relationship of writing to knowledge, belief, and social organization in contexts such as popular and social media, politics and activism, literature and art, and professional, technical, and academic cultures.
