ENGL 3388 Autobiography (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

In this course, we will focus on the form, theory, and history of autobiography. In our effort to understand the conventions, varieties, and rhetorical features of autobiographical writing, we will pay particular attention to the boundaries this genre shares with both biography and first-person fiction. Readings will include autobiographies; personal essays; graphic memoirs; and some short autobiographical fiction. Writing assignments will include both academic and autobiographical essays.
