We're a Happy Family

This section of LHSP 125 will pivot on two main, simultaneous concerns: the development of your writing voice and the essential practice of revision. While our texts will explore the sometimes dark, sometimes destructive, and always mysterious pull of family, this course is ultimately designed to guide your development as critical readers, thinkers, and writers able to communicate in an academic community. We will use a workshop format to discuss our work-in-progress, with both peer critiques and full class workshops. Workshops will help us develop the critical skills necessary to read, discuss and analyze a piece of writing, and to learn how to apply these critical skills to our own work, especially in the process of revision. This class will stress drafting and revision as a necessary component of the writing process. Active class participation will also be a vital component of our class; discussions will develop critical processes that I believe help us clarify our thoughts and write good essays. In the end this course will improve upon your own writing processes and working methods as strategies you can return to as you continue to develop your writing.

Students will be expected to complete four revised essays, two short essays and two longer papers, and several one-page response papers. Our readings will include several essays that discuss notions of family in history and within the United States, as well as several short stories, a play, two novels, and two films steeped in family secrets, lore, struggle, dysfunction, and joy.

Texts may include Goodbye, Columbus, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Affliction, Into the Great Wide Open, Housekeeping, The Virgin Suicides, Magnolia, The Squid and the Whale, and East is East.
