Persuasion

Spring 2018

Taught By: Arnold Klein

Section: A

CRN: 2016

Credits: 3

The nature and status of rhetoric, or the art of persuasion, has been variously determined by theorists and practitioners, for it makes all the difference whether the art is referred to eternal values, individual power, social utility or civic institutions. In the course we survey classic theories of rhetoric and analyze classic examples, with special reference to applications to visual and artefactual works.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least two prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. One of these courses should be 3000-level.
