This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | As Wendell Berry wrote, “The world is full of places. Why is it that I am here?” In this class, we will discover how to connect our intimate experiences to a broader social history by studying the work of Jesmyn Ward, Camille Dungy, Karen Tei Yamashita, Nick Flynn, and others. Then, 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.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
