CCM 221 Rhetorical Theory (4)

This course approaches rhetorical theory through the concept of a pluriverse that informs contemporary postcolonial and decolonial rhetorical theories. By centering scholars, organizers, activists, and artists whose work is informed by lived experiences as well as by postmodern, postcolonial, decolonial, queer, critical, feminist, and disability studies, this course considers how broader intellectual and cultural movements are shaping the future of rhetorical studies. Moreover, this course equips students to connect the study of rhetoric to ethical ways of thinking and being in the world.
