Primary Instructor:

Primarily, this is a college writing course to teach students how to construct an argumentative essay and produce college level scholarship. You will learn to be a better writer through going through several writing processes. Peer editing, writing, and reading about writing will help make think about writing as an important medium of communication. The goal of the class is to be able to participate in critical dialogues in the classroom and through essays about the cultural and political work of representations of celebrities in the U.S. cultural imaginary. Students work closely with their peers and the instructor to develop their written prose. Readings cover a variety of different genres and academic disciplines. Celebrity gossip and images of celebrities are meaningful cultural texts because we are accustomed to accepting celebrity media representations without considering the political or social implications of the information being presented. The readings, writing assignments, and class discussions will be focused on a critical look at celebrities as a political topic of discussion. The images of celebrities are a powerful force because they perpetuate normalizing discourses about race, gender, sexualities, and the nation.
