Next year LS&A will dedicate both Fall and Winter semesters to issues of citizenship, and this course will be linked to that theme. We will discuss and do a lot of writing (both formal and informal) about what it means to be a citizen today, as well as thinking about what civic role students can and should play in local and national communities. Students will observe and analyze local civic activities such as a city council or school board meeting, and in response to the upcoming mid-term elections, we will think about the ways politicians use various media (or the media uses them) to shape their images. Toward the end of the semester students will make some intervention of their choice into the public sphere--possible examples include setting up a blog on a political issue of interest to them, writing a charter for a new student organization, or studying and ultimately calling a politically-themed radio show. In the process of addressing these questions about citizenship, we will determine and negotiate our standards for effective argumentation, and write about that experience. This process will include discussions about what an effective argument is, as well as various attendant questions including, but certainly not limited to: What are the standards for judging the quality of an argument? How might these standards differ depending on the context in which the argument is made, as well as the audience? What must be present (and what absent) in an argument in order to be considered effective? This course depends on student involvement and contributions. Your ideas, analyses, creativity and ability to help one another will determine the tone and direction of the course.
