Primary Instructor:

What makes an effective argument? How can writing engage, invigorate, and persuade? How does a good piece of written work—regardless of the disciplinary background of its writer—signal its authority, make its claims, and leave a lasting impression on the minds of its readers? In this course, we shall probe, discuss, and arrive at some answers to these questions as we read and interrogate some seminal academic work in the literatures, arts, social sciences, sciences, and technological fields. We shall watch for how an effective writer makes their critical moves; how they harness and deploy evidence for their claims; how they lead their reader (sometimes despite the reader’s resistance); and how they continue to inform a reader’s imagination and position in the world. A consistent goal will be your development as informed and capable citizens of the world we inhabit.

This is a reading-and-writing-intensive course. Thoughtful preparation for and participation in class is mandatory throughout the term.
