This First-Year Writing Seminar investigates the portrayal of criminal subcultures in contemporary cinema and literature. The main purpose of the course is to improve the skills of critical analysis and academic writing. To that end, students will submit at least 25 pages of well-polished prose during the semester. Each week is organized around a “writing-theme” (e.g., diction, tone, organization, revision, etc.) and a “gangster-theme”, (e.g., intra-familial politics, omertà, old mob vs. new mob, “flipping”). Frequent topics of discussion will be characterization, plot structure, language, and communication.
