In this course students apply narrative theories from multiple disciplines - communication, psychology, literature, neuroscience, and theater - to critically analyze the anatomy of effective and persuasive stories. Investigating historical folklore and contemporary narrative paradigms from the 21st century, students analyze why some stories and forms are more persuasive, inspiring, and mythic than others. Through practice and developmental coaching, students enhance their own repertoire of persuasive storytelling abilities and discover their own authentic and rhetorical voices. For media coverage on this course, see This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth.
