Primary Instructor:

In this course we will explore distinctions between academic and other "real" writing as you enter the university and develop your own writing voices. In the first half of the term, we will start with different kinds of break-up stories by writers such as Lorrie Moore, Russell Banks, Amy Hempel, Raymond Carver, Philip Roth, and Charles Baxter and practice critical thinking and close analysis in our academic writing. As we bring in scholarly response and critique, we will model and practice critical and comparative analyses of our readings, and work on a more purposeful process of revision to develop our formal academic writing voices. Halfway through the term, however, we will shift our focus to consider other kinds of digital writing that makes use of images, links, audio, and video to convey and shape information and ideas, and communicate with readers.

The course hopes to reveal to us the range of writing used in today's shifting digital climate, address some of the distinctions and tensions between academic and new media writing, and allow us to consider and practice several kinds of writing. In part, the second half of this course intends to raise questions about how we negotiate our various writing voices to reach various audiences.

Course Requirements:

Through class discussions and creative projects, this class will investigate how writing is changing, and improve your confidence and ability to communicate in a variety of written forms. One of our projects will ask you to transform an academic paper into some new media form. Students will write several formal academic papers and produce a blog to showcase other new media writing developed during the term.
