This January, I’ll be teaching Introduction to Rhetoric and Writing Studies in Italy.
I know, right!?!?
We are currently in Siracusa in Sicily, where we will be studying the Greeks and their contributions to rhetoric, and visiting the Museo and Parco Archaeologico to see the Greek presence on the island.
Then, we will travel to Rome, learn about Cicero, Quintilian, and the boys, and see as much as we can see in Rome. In class, we will then talk about writing, communication, language, literacy, technology, and rhetoric (always rhetoric!) and/or whatever we can talk about in the 15 remaining days.
My students will be writing and learning, learning and writing, all on this blog. Follow along! They’re going to be growing as thinkers and as people in the next three weeks, and I, for one, am excited to watch the process.
