This is the course site for Professor Wendy Hayden’s fall 2016 rhetoric class at Hunter College, CUNY. We are studying Hillary Clinton in the context of rhetorical studies and her historic candidacy in the context of women’s history.
We experimented with a crowdsourced syllabus where students chose the readings (except for the first few class sessions). We also collaborated on the description and guiding questions for the course. Finally, we produced this course summation post where you can read about how we explored the questions we posed in the course description and the projects that resulted from the course.
We hope this site is useful to you as you explore the role of gendered rhetoric in the election. We have used tags to make the site easier to search and have also provided a few teaching resources. Please let us know how you make use of the site.
