RHET 330/3350 - Writing and Cognition (3 cr.)

   or equivalent.

For students beginning fall 2013 and later, RHET 2010 has been replaced by RHET 120/1020 - Research Writing (3 cr.) .

This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the phenomenon of writing by examining the cultural values embedded in writing and the cognitive claims about the relationship between thought and language, and by surveying the ways written expression has been used as a tool for reconstructing perception, memory, self and society. These issues will be approached through reading and writing together, and through experimenting with assumptions and hypotheses about what happens when people write. Class readings come from history, philosophy, cognitive psychology, composition studies, and literature.
