Summer Course Offering 5/7/10

Interested in rhetoric and still need to fulfill American Cultures Breadth Requirement? Consider this summer course offering!

Rhetoric 139AC: Autobiography and the Rhetoric of Individualism in America
Instructor: Michael Mascuch
Time & Location:
MWF: 9am - 11:30am (209 Dwinelle)
Summer session A

This course is intended to fulfill the American Cultures Breadth
Requirement. Its basic purpose will be to introduce students to American
autobiography and American cultures by means of exploring how
representations of personal experience by writers of diverse cultural
groups respond to or are otherwise informed by the American rhetoric of
individualism. We will begin with a general, critical discussion of
"individualism" as an ideology and of "autobiography" as a literary
genre with a particular rhetorical function for Americans, and then move
on to explore the complex relationship between genre and ideology in
American cultures through rhetorical analysis of particular
autobiographies. We will examine a series of primary works drawn from
three distinct American cultures: African Americans, European Americans,
and Asian Americans, in order to see the ways in which writers have
responded to the imperatives of ideology and genre.
