ENGL 1719 Writing In/Justice: The Power of Response (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this writing workshop students will question, analyze, and respond to injustice through writing. By responding to readings, to the times we live in, and to their own long-burning questions regarding justice and injustice and the gap between, students will grow as college writers and thinkers. Education, discrimination in its many forms, economic inequality, and other topics determined by student interest will be examined. Texts will include Spiegelman's graphic novel MAUS, Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Coates’ open letter to his son, Between the World and Me. Projects include letters, editorials, personal narratives, interviews, philosophical ponderings, a multi-genre research project.
