Turning Ancestral Research into Narrative [Katie Lee Ellison]
CLASS UPDATE: This class will now be taking place online, on Zoom. This has been updated from the print catalog.
Intermediate | In this class, we’ll build stories of ourselves from letters, photographs, public records, doctors’ prescriptions, dating profiles, and other sources via study of Audre Lorde’s Zami: A New Spelling of My Name, Porochista Khakpour’s Brown Album, Sophia Shalmiyev’s Mother Winter, Elissa Washuta’s My Body is a Book of Rules, and E. J. Koh’s The Magical Language of Others. We’ll combine primary sources and form in service to the nuances of our stories and identities.
