RPW 251W - Rhetorics of Gender Activism

Course Cross-listed with GS 251W 
3 credit(s) Writing Intensive
If, as Aristotle claims, rhetoric is the study of the available means of persuasion, then it seems imperative that rhetoric turn its attention to the ways in which activists concerned with issues of gender and sexuality have sought to enact social and political change in a range of contexts throughout history. This course applies rhetorical analysis to essays, speeches, documentary films, visual media, and artifacts from activist organizations, all in an effort to understand better the techniques that gender activists use to mobilize, to challenge, and to create change.
Prerequisite(s): RPW 110  and GS 100 , or permission of instructor.
Laboratory fee.
