Course Description for Contexts and Constraints: A Workshop in Interdisciplinary and Innovative Writing
Contexts and Constraints: A Workshop in Interdisciplinary and Innovative Writing
Description: This workshop extends the ways students approach writing by using a variety of contexts and constraints to generate compelling, thought-provoking, and resonant texts. Critical theory, cultural studies, and/or theoretical writing concepts may be used as contexts in which students develop richer subtextual, multi-modal, and innovative prose. Students will find an interdisciplinary context for each writing assignment, produce two substantial submissions over the course of the term, and create a portfolio that will include a final essay that discusses their process, resources, and results.
Repeatability: This course can be repeated for up to 9 credits.
