Non-Fiction and/as Design

Taught By: Wendy Walters

Section: A

CRN: 7632

Credits: 3

Design is the plan of construction for a process or object that serves a function, or appears to be of measurable use. This class will observe the relationship between nonfiction/research-based writing and design to uncover the ways truth appears to be told and retold. We will consider writing that engages both design principles and thinking as a set of values that determine how voice, narrative, history, objects and formal convictions shape accounts of experience. The texts will engage narrative, poetic, and philosophical impulses. We will also open space for artists whose work confirms the text is a site of iterative practice and dynamic invention.
