ENG 118 - Special Topics: Diversity In Rhetoric, Writing, And Digital Media

Description: ENG 118 focuses on rhetorical analysis of written, digital, and visual texts on U.S. ethnic diversity issues, laying the foundation for continued study of how race and ethnicity intersect with aspects of class, gender, power, politics, history, religion, environment, and culture, and how race and ethnicity influence the experiences of racial and ethnic minorities in a growing globalized community. Students engage in critical thinking about and analysis of the diverse human experiences of U.S. ethnic and racial populations, conduct research, and compose in written, visual, and digital modalities. This course will increase students' awareness of the perspectives and experiences of one or more U.S. ethnic minority groups (such as African American, Alaskan Native, American Indian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Latino/a peoples). Letter grade only. May be repeated for a maximum of 9 units.
