In this course we will broaden and deepen our minds and support the further development of critical, creative thought about ourselves and culture. Diverse readings across genres (short stories, novels, poetry, plays, and essays) will introduce students to the question of voice and methodology. We all have stories to tell: Which genre will best engage and enthrall? How do authors challenge the status quo and reveal meanings otherwise hidden in human experience? Reading (and writing about) these works will offer the opportunity to develop skills through close readings and critical analysis, figurative responses and reactions to critical essays.
