The Power of the Writing Voice
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Words have power to ignite political storms, protest movements, and revolutions. Throughout history, writers have used their voices to create stories that have transformed the world. This course will examine powerful voices in history that have inspired social, political, economic, environmental and cultural change. Students will critically examine the power of these voices through the written word, lectures, and various other media. By critically listening to revolutionary speeches and "Soul" music, and by critically reading literature and essays, students will sharpen their own writing voices. As students explore the complex, dynamic relationships between the written word and cultural change, they will gain insight into the nature of power and influence.
Restricted to UH students who matriculated in Fall 2020 or later.

This course is part of the Information and Power Thematic Cluster and must be paired with HNUH 258A to complete the cluster. Information and Power courses will be offered through Spring 2023.
