I continue to maintain this list of classes, now with UVA support! -- Lou Bloomfield, Professor Emeritus of Physics
The Rhetoric for the 21st Century literacy provides experience with rhetorical arts learned and practiced over the course of one's life. These include written, oral, and digital forms of expression used by highly literate members of our society. Both the First Writing and Second Writing requirements comprise the Rhetoric for the 21st Century component of the New Curriculum.

All students in the New College Curriculum will enroll in a course that counts towards the Second Writing requirement. These courses are taught in the Disciplines and ask students to engage in the practice of writing as part of the course. Your Second Writing course can also count towards a Discipline requirement.

 ENGL 2506 Studies in Poetry
 Love Poetry
12953 001SEM (3)Open 11 / 18Andrew Stauffer MoTuWeThFr 10:30am - 12:45pmWeb-Based Course
 You can read the “Love” of this course’s title as an adjective, noun, or imperative verb: we are going to deepen our love of poetry by studying the poetry of love written across time periods (from antiquity to the present) and global cultures: from Sappho and Horace to Rita Dove and Lisa Russ Spaar. We will be looking closely at how poems work -- how they accomplish their particular magic – while also thinking about the varieties of love and the complexities each offers to language and to art. Daily writing and small group conversation, occasional larger group meetings where you will be called on to speak, two formal papers, and a concluding exercise.
 ENGL 2508 Studies in Fiction
 Science Fiction

11248 002SEM (3)Closed 17 / 18Patricia Sullivan MoTuWeThFr 10:30am - 12:45pmWeb-Based Course
 In this studies in fiction course, we will read short stories, a short novel or two, and watch some short television shows (think Black Mirror) or films about the fear of things going horribly wrong. Along the way we will practice close reading strategies; reflect on acts of interpretation through brief references to some works by literary and cultural critics; and inquire into some of the elements, functions, and effects of narratives. Students will write regular reading responses, lead discussions with brief oral presentations, write two short essays, and take a final exam. Fulfills Second Writing Requirement/WE.
Writing and Rhetoric
 ENWR 2520 Special Topics in Writing
 Writing with Style
11263 001SEM (3)Closed 15 / 18Claire Chantell MoTuWeThFr 1:00pm - 3:15pmBryan Hall 312
 This class is for any writer--novice or experienced--eager to become more aware of the power of language and the subject of style. Through reading, research, and constant experimentation, students will learn to control grammar, punctuation, phrasing, and syntax for rhetorical and aesthetic effect and to identify and correct common errors in writing. This course will proceed both synchronously (meeting as a class online through Zoom several days a week) and asynchronously (contributing to discussions and activities off-line on a weekly basis).

11255 001SEM (3)Open 11 / 14Kevin Smith MoTuWeThFr 10:30am - 12:45pmWeb-Based Course
 Public Speaking: Speaking Digital Publics will examine what it means to “speak” to a “public” in the digital age. Students will engage in the production and analysis of digital forms of public speaking, such as vlogs, Zoom presentations, podcasts, videos, and social media posts. We will collectively ask where and how digital publics are addressed, to what ends, and in what forms. We will develop rhetorical frameworks for analyzing and preparing forms of digital public address and reflect on how these frameworks might prepare us for public speaking IRL. This course will meet online synchronously (that is, live at the designated meeting time) via Zoom. This course satisfies the Second Writing Requirement (SWR).
