Primary Instructor:

Any inquiry into the nature of writing depends upon an equivalent query into the nature of audience: before we can examine the full array of writing options available to us, we must consider for whom we write. This course will familiarize students with a range of contexts defining questions of audience and offers approaches to the act of writing tailored to these contexts. Throughout the term, students will refine their abilities to recognize and adapt to multiple audiences; students will reflect on the different ways writers talk of audience, voice, style and composition in their varied disciplines and fields.

The lecture series will feature university and community speakers and discussants accomplished in both the writing of their respective fields and the teaching of those fields’ particulars. We will collaborate with professionals in publishing and editing; law and legal culture; sociology and social work; medicine and associated health fields; and history, literature and journalism. We will abstract from these collaborations both a sense of what skills are shared by all disciplines and how these skills are best adapted to the rhetorical and discipline-specific requirements of each.
