CRN: 9654

Credits: 1

This is a January 2021 intensive course. It will meet between January 4-15. See the exact meeting dates and times below. A memorable personal narrative tells a story that is larger than its subject. It reveals how an individual’s life is shaped by and inseparable from the weight of history, geography, politics, and identity. During the course, students will investigate the way storytellers use journalistic tools to make sense of the world. Through readings and written assignments, students will examine how narrative can simultaneously capture the personal as well as the universal. Students will also learn how to incorporate research, interviews, and first-person reporting into their work in order to excavate, map, and craft the larger stories of their lives.
