ENGL 002V. Visual Rhetorics and Multimodal Writing:Making arguments with image, text, and sound

We live in visually-mediated times. The rhetorical power of images-to inform, persuade, and manipulate-is especially worthy of our attention as 21st-century writers. Increasingly, whether in the sciences, humanities, or in popular discourse, we are asked to create multimodal texts-that is, texts which combine visual, aural and alphabetic modes. In English 2V students will gain hands-on experience producing maps, video essays, and argument-driven essays for online audiences and analyzing multimodal arguments made by others. Students will revise projects in response to feedback from classmates, the professor, and other readers/audience members, and class time will be given to developing both traditional and multimodal writing processes.
