Visual Rhetoric

This course was part of the department’s Studies in Rhetoric series. I taught the course in Fall 2014 as both an upper-division undergraduate and a graduate course. Visual Rhetoric introduced students to foundational theory in visual rhetoric and asked students to apply knowledge of visual rhetoric to their everyday world. The course required an individual analysis of a visual rhetoric artifact of the student’s choosing and also required students to apply their knowledge of visual rhetoric to designing a visual logo for The LILAC Project. The students also posted regularly to our Visual Rhetoric Pinterest board and their posts became a regular topic of discussion during the class meetings.
