The Art of Argument and Bullshit: Jenny Rice

This fall, University of Kentucky WRD Professor Jenny Rice will be leading the course UKC 381: Argumentation - “Deliberation, Persuasion, and Bullshit in the Public Sphere." While the title of the course may seem provocative, the topic is serious. In the class, students can expect to examine the tactics and strategies used to argue key issues in the public sphere and what the legacy of those arguments have left us with today.

In this podcast, Professor Rice discusses the role of argumentation in our lives daily as well as what philosopher Harry Frankfurt infamously labeled “bullshit" and its impact on conversations both local and national.

Art and Epidemics: UKC 310 with Rita Basuray and Katherine Rogers-Carpenter

Creative expression and disease aren't two topics that are often juxtaposed, but UKC 310: Art and Epidemics, will explore five diseases from a creative and technical angle: tuberculosis, AIDS, cancer, alcoholism, and the plague - through a variety of creative lenses, including film, short fiction, poetry, and art. Rita Basuray and Katherine Rogers-Carpenter will co-teach the fall 2013 course, looking at the parallels between scientific and creative writing, and where these forms diverge.
