Dr. Carolyn Hill


Carolyn Hill
Lecturer, Class of 1980
Carolyn Hill received her doctorate in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley, studying the argumentative artistry of Sir James Frazer’s Golden Bough. She has been teaching at the university for over thirty years, writes science fiction and fantasy, and is proud of her CW 106 students and the website they’ve created.  She created this course not only to help students further develop their arguments in their respective disciplines but also to help students familiarize themselves with the arguments of other disciplines taught at Cal. The very first argument she wrote as a UCB undergraduate in the 1970s prompted the instructor to comment, with emphasis, “A logical sounding paper that does seem to move, although it isn’t always clear where.”
