WTEIII: Creative Inquiry

Fall 2021

Taught By: Liz Latty

Section: A

CRN: 11168

Credits: 3

WRITING THE ESSAY III: CREATIVE INQUIRY. What is research and how do we go about it? What creative and innovative possibilities exist for the ways in which writers can use research in our work? What are the limits of research and what roles do invention, imagination, and the personal play in research-based writing? In this writing-intensive class, we will pursue paths of creative inquiry, taking as our subject the process of research itself, including the ways in which research and its methodologies have the power to harm as well as illuminate. We will examine various models of creative inquiry, exploring the work of writers who resist, push, and blur our understanding of and the boundaries between knowability, experience, and imagination. Students will try out a range of research methods that may include navigating archival research, accessing public records, conducting interviews, and drawing on (or seeking out) personal experience. Each student will embark on an individualized project of creative inquiry, culminating in an essay, that may be scholarly, journalistic, creative, or theoretical/polemical. Essay development will be supported by short research and reflection assignments. This course meets once a week and also requires weekly attendance at the Craft Lunch series of lectures on writing, held Mondays from 12:30-1:30 p.m. When you register for this course, you must also register yourself in LNGC 2075 Writing Craft-Lesson Lunches. This specialized course is designed for upper-level and transfer students who have yet to fulfill their WTEII requirement. Prerequisite: Writing the Essay I or equivalent in transfer credits.

CRN: 7414

Credits: 3

"WRITING THE ESSAY III: CREATIVE INQUIRY. What kinds of research go into a work of writing? What sources and methods are available to us as writers, and how can we be creative in integrating them into our work? In this writing-intensive class, we will pursue paths of creative inquiry, taking as our subject the process of research itself. We will read about and examine models of creative inquiry, while trying out a range of research methods ourselves, including navigating library and archival research, accessing public records, conducting interviews, and drawing on (and seeking out) personal experience. Each student will propose an individualized writing project that they will, in consultation with the instructor, develop throughout the semester. These projects may be scholarly, journalistic, creative, or theoretical/polemical, and their development will be supported by regular short research and reflection assignments. Texts may include work by Samuel R. Delany, Dodie Bellamy, Paul Preciado, Valeria Luiselli, T. Fleischmann, Sara Ahmed, and Maggie Nelson. This course meets once a week and also requires weekly attendance at the Craft Lunch series of lectures on writing, held Mondays from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Registration for Creative Inquiry automatically registers you for the Craft Lunch series—please do not also register for the Craft Lunches. This specialized course is designed for upper-level and transfer students who have yet to fulfill their WTEII requirement. Prerequisite: Writing the Essay I or equivalent in transfer credits. "
