Class Descriptions

C W 810.01

According to Aristotle (among many others) art is an imitation of reality. Its purpose is, as Hamlet says, “to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to nature.” But what about art that represents the unreal? What of literature that depicts monsters and magic, post apocalyptic futures, time travel and ghosts (like, for example, Hamlet)? In this course we will look specifically at how the unreal is used in the depiction of (often very real) collective and personal trauma. Reading the work of authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Octavia E. Butler, Margaret Atwood, George Saunders, and Toni Morrison, we will dig into to questions of craft, process, and purpose, stretching and growing as readers, while we try out new techniques and further hone our craft as writers.  

C W 880: Writing in the Public Context

In this graduate process seminar for writers in all genres, we'll explore resonances between the private and the public, inner world and outer, familiar and unfamiliar, accessible and inaccessible, known and unknown.  We'll target material outside the province of personal history, seeking out worlds and subjects that lure us for reasons we may not fully understand.  Most weeks, we'll leave the classroom and meet up at an undisclosed location.  Through reading and writing assignments, we'll consider strategies for engaging and questioning the material we collect, remaining alert to resonances in our own lives, personalities, and personal histories.  Each student will also devise his or her own Contact Project: a nonlinear exploration of the semester's experience.      

N.B.: This course will meet from 4pm until 9 to 9:30, from January 30th to April 3rd ONLY, plus one meeting in the final week for Contact Project presentationsThe extended class meetings will allow us to meet on campus for part of the session and then take ourselves out into the world.
