Rhetoric/Pop Culture

This course is an investigation of rhetorics of U.S. culture with a focus on how constructions of class, gender, race, and sexuality work in contemporary television, film, music, and advertising. The course prepares students to explain the ways rhetoric and culture shape our world, connect popular artifacts with cultural history, analyze popular culture using rhetorical methods, and build skills in oral and visual argument.
