Introduction to Medical Narratives (ASYNCHRONOUS) [Emily Rapp Black]
All Levels | Medical narratives—what are they? How do you know if you’re writing one? We will explore the foundations of this increasingly popular nonfiction subgenre, which focuses on stories of illness, disability, or any other “non-normative” condition. Using the foundational work of Arthur Frank and Susan Sontag, we will focus on discussion of three books: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi; A Room with a Darker View by Claire Phillips; and Body, Remember by Kenny Fries.
This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
