Narrative Time Travel

All Levels | Joy Williams says that stories are concerned with the “dark encroachment of old catastrophes.” This class will look at stories that rely heavily on synthesizing the past, present, and future and approach fiction from a non-linear perspective. We’ll explore the nature of flashbacks, flash-forwards, and drastic leaps in time. Authors we may read include Jennifer Egan, Mary Gaitskill, and Alice Munro.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
