Beyond First-Year Writing

ENWR 2520 Special Topics in Writing

Offers a changing selection of inquiry-based writing courses in response to student interest and instructor availability. Past topics have included business and technical writing, sports writing, cyber-ethics, writing for the web, writing about law and literature, and creative non-fiction. If you are interested in having a particular ENWR 2520 topic offered in upcoming semesters, please contact the writing program to let us know. (Meets second writing requirement.)

ENWR 2520 002 New Media Sports Writing

T/Th 12:30-1:45

Marcus Meade

Uses new media outlets like 538.com and the Players Tribune as models for practices in new media sports writing, which incorporates text, photo, video, and audio compositions in one platform. The course will explore the different rhetorical possibilities new media platforms provide and allow students to practice utilizing those possibilities.

ENWR 2520 007 Legal Writing

Mo 6:00-8:30 Annie Kim

Examines the building blocks of legal writing to sharpen written advocacy skills. Using culturally relevant case studies and legal texts, we’ll learn how to write for different audiences—courts, clients, attorneys. We’ll work in teams to craft responses to each other’s writing. Both students pursuing legal careers and those seeking to strengthen their persuasive writing will benefit from this course. (Meets second writing requirement.)

ENWR 3640 Writing With Sound

Steph Ceraso

T/Th 11:00-12:15

Trains students to become attuned, thoughtful listeners and sonic composers. In addition to discussing key works on sound from fields such as rhetoric and composition, sound studies, and journalism, we will experiment with the possibilities of sound as a valuable form of writing and storytelling. Students will learn how to use digital audio editing tools, platforms, and techniques for designing and producing sonic projects. (Meets second writing requirement.) 

ENWR 3660 Travel Writing

Kate Stephenson

T/Th 3:30-4:45

Explores travel writing using a variety of texts, including essays, memoirs, blogs, photo essays, and narratives. We will examine cultural representations of travel as well as the ethical implications of tourism. Students will have the opportunity to write about their own travel experiences, and we will also embark on “local travel” of our own. 

ENWR 3665 Writing About the Environment

Cory Shaman

T 3:30-6:00

Focuses on creating meaningful, responsible, and engaged writing in the context of significant environmental issues. Analysis of representative environmental texts, familiarity with environmental concepts, examination of ethical positions in private and public spheres of writing, and sustained practice with form, style, medium, and genre will drive a variety of writing projects. (Meets second writing requirement.) 

ENPG 3559 Cross-Cultural Tutoring

MW 3:30-4:45

Kate Kostelnik

In this course, we’ll look at a variety of texts from academic arguments, narratives, and pedagogies, to consider what it means to write, communicate, and learn across cultures.  Topics will include contrastive rhetorics, world Englishes, rhetorical listening, and tutoring multilingual writers.  A service learning component, in partnership with Madison House, will require students to volunteer with the LAMA (Latinx and Migrant Aid) or ESOL programs.  We will discuss pedagogies and practical, strengths-based strategies in working with multi-lingual learners on their writing; tutor members of the Charlottesville community; and create writing projects that convey learning from these experiences.  While the course will specifically prepare students to tutor multilingual writers, these skills are adaptable and applicable across disciplines and discourses.  Basically, students will learn how to use dialogic engagement to support collaboration and conversation across cultures.  Self-designed final writing projects will give students from various majors—education, public policy, commerce, social sciences, and STEM—the opportunity to combine their specific discourse knowledge with our course content. (Meets second writing requirement.) 

ENWR 3559 From Hieroglyphics to Emojis: Experiments with the History of Writing 

Patricia Sullivan

MoWe 5:00-6:15

The invention of writing was amazing and its reinvention is ongoing. This course takes a creative and hands-on approach to the millennia long history of writing in a global context. Together, we will explore the historical and cultural role of writing and writers from early scribes and clerks to contemporary poets, essayists and bloggers. Whenever possible, we will not only read about different writing materials, techniques and cultures, but also conduct writing “experiments.” Perhaps we will write with a feather pen and homemade ink; create an illuminated manuscript; type with a manual typewriter; write with new technologies and electronic genres to create web pages; work with dictation software, texting, or algorithmic writing (let the computer do the writing). We will explore the relation of speaking to writing in historical and social contexts – ancient Greece, Egypt, American slavery and emancipation, contemporary Ted talks – but we will also compose for our own speaking and writing contexts. We will explore historical and cultural writing groups – scribal cultures, community writing groups, creative writing workshops, fan fiction sites, zines (online and print) – but we will also create our own writing groups and projects. Students will write regularly both analytically and creatively, will be encouraged to explore their own writing interests, and will compose longer creative or analytical (or both) projects. This course will allow us to consider, as both readers and writers, what the history of writing in a global context might contribute to our current conceptions of writing in a context that is increasingly dominated by other technologies of communication. This seminar is discussion-oriented and writing-intensive.

ENWR 3900 The Forbes Seminars in Career-based Writing and Rhetoric

John Casteen

MoWe 3:30-4:45

Develops proficiency in a range of stylistic and persuasive effects. The course is designed for students who want to hone their writing skills, as well as for students preparing for careers in which they will write documents for public circulation. Students explore recent research in writing studies. In the workshop-based studio sessions, students propose, write, and edit projects of their own design. (Meets second writing requirement.)
