Introduction to Writing: The City and the Suburb

The differing aesthetics, values and contradictions of city life and suburban life are often divisive elements in present day America. This class will ask you to focus on your personal growing conceptions of the city and the suburb in order to explore both your own values as well as those you see manifest in the world around you. We will open our focus from the places we live to include also the places we visit—where each of us feels most stimulated, most uncomfortable, most at home, and why. We will produce frequent small writing assignments and four larger papers—one argumentative, one analytical, one personal and one creative—in order to sharpen our critical, descriptive and organizational skills.

Readings will include Robert Venturi’s Learning from Las Vegas, Stephen Crane’s “Maggie, A Girl of the Streets,” essays by Luc Sante and Joan Didion, and stories by John Cheever. We will also hope to view at least one movie, by Sofia Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola, or both.
