Calderwood Seminar in Public Writing: Writing for Social Justice

PHIL 275
Fall 2018
Section: 01  
Certificates: Writing

One of the greatest strengths of learning philosophy is that it helps you to become a better thinker and a clearer communicator. Of course, as we get deeper into philosophical studies, we end up thinking with and communicating to a smaller group of specialists. Fortunately, there are an increasing number of philosophers who also use their training in philosophy to write for broader audiences. In this course, Professor Gruen will share what she has learned about public writing and help you develop your skills for communicating publicly about pressing issues of social justice. We will read, discuss, and most importantly write on topics including those: on race, on animals, on immigration, on prisons, on climate change, on reproductive justice, and other topics chosen by the class.
