All Levels | We will explore experimental autobiography as a genre. Our focus will be on work that seeks to relay how something “felt” rather than how it “occurred,” and uses intertextuality, temporal fragmentation, and/or fictionalization to achieve that goal. In addition to studying examples from Maggie Nelson, Samuel R. Delany, and Karl Ove Knausgaard, we’ll also undertake writing exercises to help us find new and exciting ways into our own personal histories.
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.
