ENGL 4532 Advanced Creative Non-fiction: Text and Image (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Through the reading and writing of creative non-fiction essays which employ both text and image, we will explore the creative tension between eye and ear that takes place in such works, as well as the implications for us as consumers of the constructed image and utterance. Students will construct four shorter essays and two longer ones. Shorter essays will focus on research and reflection concerning a single set of photographs, paintings, current political events, or steps on a pilgrimage, as suggested in texts by W.G. Sebald, Lawrence Weschler, John Berger, or Susan Sontag.
