Additional Course Details: 

The human body is a rich and complex communicative resource. In this class, we will examine how the body, in coordination with talk, contributes to meaning making in face-to-face interaction. We will look closely at the movements of the eyes, face, hands, head, torso, and legs, as well as the use of objects and space, for their role in the moment-by-moment accomplishment of a range of activities: opening and closing encounters, telling stories, aligning to an interactional partner,  and so on. Although we will mainly draw on interactionist studies of the body, we will also consider cognitive, cultural, developmental, and even evolutionary themes in our investigations.  The class will center around the use of videotaped data to examine
embodied behaviors in interaction.  Non-majors please contact the professor regarding registering for this class.

Course Description - Images of death are ubiquitous in our society, yet death continues to be taboo and grief has become a "silent epidemic," especially among young adults. This course examines end of life (EoL) communication in a variety of contexts. We will take a close look at how people communicate about death and dying, how people communicate with the dying and the bereaved, and the rituals and practices through which we create meaning out of loss. Throughout the semester, we will attend to the social construction of death in our culture and other cultures, and interrogate why some deaths are afforded dignity and respect, while others are relegated to the margins. Death imbues communication with profound significance. It is my hope that students will develop a dialogic relationship with death, and in turn, gain a deeper appreciation of life.

Additional Course Details: 

In this class, we will explore the enormous rhetorical powers of photographic images - whether combined with photographic images - whether combined with text or not - to inform, educate, delight, and, of course, persuade viewers. We will learn how to consider the rhetorical function of photographs that were taken with the intent to record as well as those that were taken with the intent to persuade; “disposable” photographs as well as famous “classics”; single, unique photographs as well as those commonly embedded in social movements and photo-essays; contemporary photographs “in the prime of” their original rhetorical function as well as some that have outlasted their original message to take on new rhetorical functions. In addition to thinking about particular photographs, we will also consider the ethos of photography itself as a scientific imaging technology. We will supplement our viewing by reading what some of the theorists have had to say about photographs and other kinds of pictures. And, finally, we will sample some of the work rhetorical critics have produced as the discipline has expanded to acknowledge the importance of visual as well as verbal rhetorical artifacts.  Non-majors: please contact the professor regarding registering for this class.

Additional Course Details: 

Podcasting has exploded in popularity over the past few years. As a means of self-expression, sharing information, instruction, marketing, or expressing opinions, podcasting at its best and most effective is not just a casually produced audio report on an issue or high points from an interview. Creating an engaging, substantive podcast provides an opportunity to inform and express on a high level, and deliver a finished product in a relatively short period of time. We will listen to the work of many of the top podcasters, who spend hours carefully constructing their episodes. We will learn and use many of the same methods of writing, storytelling, speaking, audio production and post-production traditionally used in podcasts today.  Each student will choose from myriad topics and develop a series on a chosen topic. There will be a requirement of a minimum of one podcast episode every other week. Over the course of the semester, students will work at developing and enhancing their ability to produce sophisticated content which includes strong narrative communication.

Course Description - This course examines the sociotechnical dynamics of shame in a digital society. We will begin by exploring philosophical and sociological theories of shame and consider the role shame has historically played in governing Western societies. We will then turn to the contemporary world to explore how the affordances of digital technologies are reshaping how we think about the possibilities and consequences of shaming. Throughout, we will pay particular attention to the ways social categories – including race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual identity – shape both the experience of being shamed and larger cultural conversations about shaming. Finally, we will consider what current debates and media narratives around digital shaming – including those related to “cancel culture” – reveal about contemporary cultural anxieties.
