ENGL 4432 Advanced Creative Nonfiction: Food and Culture Writing (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this creative writing workshop, the interconnection between food and culture will be explored from farm to table. Drawing on the city of Boston and its deeply rooted culinary traditions, we’ll consider the rituals connected to food-making and eating. Literary readings will highlight the early settlers who created a distinct New England cuisine, and the recent ethnic groups and artisanal food makers who have shaped today’s culinary landscape. Students will explore the way food and identity are inextricably linked by engaging in a variety of writing tasks from memoir to literary profiles of people, food, and place.
