ENGL 201 - W03 Screeds and Manifestos M - W - - - - 1525 - 1700 JRC 246
CRN: 22384 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Charles A. Conley At least since we learned to write, humanity has been straying from the path of righteousness, and it seems someone was always there writing a screed to tell us precisely how to stay on that path. For about as long, people have been writing manifestos to explain what needs to be done to fix everything. Screeds and manifestos are uncompromising and strident forms of persuasion, seemingly at odds with the purposes of academic writing. But by studying these forms of persuasive writing in extremis, we will learn tools and strategies to help us become more sensitive readers and more powerful writers. The historical range of course texts will be extensive, from Puritan-era jeremiads through twentieth century artistic and political manifestos like Tristan Tzara’s Dada Manifesto and Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
