Writing Across the Aisle

Section 64555

  • Note: In our politically polarized age, we are growing increasingly unsure of whether it is possible to converse productively with those who occupy a drastically different position on the political spectrum. This course will explore this question by focusing on rhetorical issues relating to audience, with emphasis on empathy (why do others think differently?), and ethos (why would someone listen to me?). We will also reflect on the socio-political function of writing in our current climate.
