Contextualizing the Family Story

As Wendell Berry wrote, “The world is full of places. Why is it that I am here?” This class will connect our intimate, family experiences to a broader social history. Using a combination of research and in-class writing assignments, we will practice grounding our subjective emotional truths in objective external circumstances. The result will be individual stories that reflect a greater sense of where we come from and who we are.
