Title: Global Approaches to Criticism
Course Section Number: RHE-270-02
Department: Rhetoric
Description: Rhetoric exists across the globe, and this course seeks to explore theories and methods of rhetorical criticism that emerge from diverse societies and cultural perspectives. Students will establish a broad understanding of what constitutes "rhetoric" and rhetorical practices by examining different ideas and practices of rhetoric throughout history from all parts of the world including Mesopotamia, Asia, and Mesoamerica. This course will also present contemporary approaches to rhetorical criticism from Afrocentric, transnational, feminist, and postcolonial lenses, to name just a few. Using a mix of articles and case studies, students will develop methodological competencies to perform one short, written rhetorical criticism and one larger, multimodal project that critically analyzes contemporary cultural practice.
