Rhetorical Practices from the Ancient World to Enlightenment

CGS RH 103

This course offers instruction in writing, critical reading and research. It focuses on four themes taken from the four units that comprise the semester's curriculum ("The Birth of 'God': The Advent of Monotheism"; "The Development of Democracy and the Democratic Self"; "Rediscovering Nature and the Self: The Renaissance" and "Reason to Revolution: The Enlightenment"). Readings and discussions relate these themes to current issues and problems in order to explore how the past has shaped the world of today. Three papers invite students to research and write about these relationships. Shorter informal writing assignments allow students to integrate the texts and lectures across the curriculum with learning experiences outside the classroom. The course makes extensive use of the university library and online resources to teach research skills. Finally, students learn core academic writing skills, including argumentation and the evaluation, integration, and documentation of sources. [Open only to students admitted to the CGS January Program] One lecture, two discussions, additional hours with the professor focused on individual writing instruction.[4 cr.]
