Shapeshifting: Writing and Reading about Mixed Race Experiences

All Levels | As mixed-race people, it is often hard to know where we belong. In conversations around race, our perspectives often get overlooked or we may feel pressure to “pick a side.” This class will hold space for multiracial people to write and share freely about our experiences and evolving identities. We will read work by writers such as Robin DiAngelo, Jewel Parker Rhodes, Jesmyn Ward, Elissa Washuta, Roxanne Gay, Claudia Rankine, Lacy Johnson, Eula Biss, Jeff Chang, and Debby Irving who write about racism, whiteness, privilege, micro-aggressions, and nonbinary thinking. We’ll freewrite extensively from prompts about how our awareness of race has permeated our lives, and optionally submit work for instructor/peer feedback. Extensive readings, homework, and personal reflection required.
