WRIT 139 SC - Election Lab: Rhetoric, Commentary, and Podcasts
Election Lab: Rhetoric, Commentary, and Podcasts
A writing class focused on the rhetoric of the current election. We’ll investigate how the language of candidates and ballot proposals tries to persuade us. Our primary texts will likely include the Voter Information Guide, political ads, debates, and speeches. We’ll also consider commentary from leading political podcasts, some chosen by the students. And we’ll study a few canonical writers on rhetoric and politics such as Raymond Williams, George Orwell, and George Lakoff.
