Primary Instructor:

From blog rants to reader comments in Amazon.com to reviews in the New York Times, the Internet has provided anyone a space to write a review—of just about anything. But is one opinion as good as another? How do we write reviews effectively and persuasively? How does the shift from print to Internet influence the rhetorical capabilities of reviews? And how has the Internet, for good or bad, transformed the traditional “elitist” arts review by affording everyone a voice?

In this course we will pursue the question of what makes a successful review by reading widely, analyzing a variety of online reviews, writing frequently, and ultimately developing our own review site/s. We will explore questions of audience, the relationship between text and image in online reviews, and the more and more frequently blurred distinctions between critic and artist, and marketer, reader and consumer. We will engage rigorous peer workshops, participate in teamwork, and consider reviews themselves as cultural products.
