Description
This course focuses on the rhetorical traditions and practices of specific communities and peoples, often (although not always) focusing on the emplaced histories and contemporary rhetorics of groups who have not been included in the Greco-Roman-Western tradition. The course examines how these communities develop rhetorics to identify themselves and enact political and social change, often by drawing on distinctive cultural resources. Course focus/emphases vary by instructor. Students strongly advised to take WRTG 2010 or equivalent prior to this course.
