Course descriptions

Topics for RHCS 295 and RHCS 412

RHCS 295 ST: Interviewing Methods- Dr. Johnson

Interviewing Methods is a course on exploring the stories of others. And in the process, it’s a course on exploring our own stories as well. Who are we? How did we come to be this way? How do we see the world? Well done, interviews can help us understand remarkable things about the world around us. As a Community-Based Learning course, Interviewing Methods students will spend the semester learning the value and techniques associated with using interviews as research while at the same time answering important questions for members of the Richmond community. 

RHCS 412 ST: Central European Rhetoric- Dr. Aczél

Rhetoric of the Central European region has been practically voiceless in the Western canon during the last two centuries. This course is aimed to be a brave adventure to (re) discover and identify those hidden voices of the discipline which when recognized shall fruitfully contribute to rhetorical theory and practice.

RHCS412 02: New Media in Global Contexts- Dr. Aczél

New Frankenstein – is how some contemporary researchers call us for being creators and users of new media technologies and applications. The course invites students who are eager to explore new media as a new culture of communication. We will consider the role of new media in the alteration of identity, authenticity, community, education, science, politics and economics.
