WRIT-012-02 Reading and Writing Seminar
Fall for 2016-2017
Rhetoric has a reputation for being manipulative, deceptive, and shallow, but this first-year writing course begins from an alternate view: that all writing represents a rhetorical act, which is to say that it is fundamentally social. Writing, in other words, depends on one’s sense of others. No single class, therefore, can prepare you with one-size-fits-all writing skills. This class aims instead to provide you with a conceptual framework for approaching writing situations, as well as the time and opportunity to practice writing. We will pursue writing as a people- and place-based technology: considering first what rhetoric is and how it works by examining others’ rhetoric and then entering into complex local conversations. Expect to write in multiple genres and multiple technologies.
