Institute for Comparative Literature and Society
Undergraduate and Graduate Seminar
This course is intended as a general introduction to the discipline known as Rhetoric of Science, which, in its simplest form, aims to apply the tools of rhetorical inquiry to the various modes of scientific discourse. Special attention will be given to examining the roles that metaphor and narrative play in that effort. A significant part of this course will be devoted to the feminist critique and analysis of science, in terms of both theory development and science communication.
Link to Vergil Note: only courses offered during the two previous semesters have active Vergil links.
