RHET 323/3330 - Words that Change the World (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
RHET 1020   or its equivalent

Description
Which words have had the greatest impact on people? What theories inform the works of authors, artists, and filmmakers? Do the arts have an intrinsic value, or are they related to and serve a purpose in the wider world? Words that Change the World examines those questions by engaging students in contemporary discourse in the liberal arts. Students employ critical reading strategies for the analysis and discussion of key texts that have had an impact on the practice and conceptual understanding of the humanities and fine arts. Through art, photography, cinema, history, dance, architecture, and other modes of expression from countries and cultures around the globe, students critically explore these thematic connections and engage in contextualized arguments.
