CAS 597 - Sound Characters: Rhetorics, Poetics, Audio, Listening

W 2:30-5:30
Prof. Eberly

This seminar travels from ancient to contemporary texts and contexts via rhetorical theory, sound, listening, and digital audio editing. Using rhetoric's productive as well as interpretive capacities, we will examine and inhabit spaces between rhetorics and poetics; normative and descriptive senses of character; and sound, radio, audio, and listening.

The course will introduce students to three central ancient conceptions of character, to sound studies work in contemporary interdisciplinary rhetorical studies in the contexts of information studies and posthumanism, and to rhetorical listening practices and audio editing. Students will produce public as well as academic scholarship.
