The Debate Studio is designed to introduce students to The New School Debate Team by way of the study of politics. It will serve as a practice seminar for those that choose to participate in debate tournaments outside of class and provides the necessary analytical and practical skills for students to compete throughout their undergraduate years. Moreover, the class will emphasize argumentation, advocacy, and public speaking and will be valuable for students who are just looking to hone their academic argumentation skills. The course will investigate the variety of approaches to advocacy found in debate: policy analysis, protest politics, and the personal as political. Each political scale will be investigated though sustained engagement with timely and topical political problems. Students will learn to approach politics from each perspective with a critical lens in order to interrogate existing social conditions in the pursuit of justice.
