Primary Instructor:

In this writing course, we will focus on the creation of complex, analytic, well-supported arguments that matter in academic contexts. You will work closely with your peers and with me to develop your written prose. Assigned readings will cover a variety of different genres and academic disciplines.

The ultimate goal of this course is to help you transition from high school-level writing to college-level writing. Of course, it is difficult to hone one’s writing skills if one has nothing to write about. Thus, the theme of our class is “Regarding the Pain of Others: Writing About Violence and Memory.” We will read scholarly, literary, and popular texts that explore contemporary patterns of violence in American culture. These materials will be both models and springboards for our writing this academic term. 

It is somewhat ironic to make violence and memory central themes of a writing course. Many scholars have pointed out that traumatic experiences are inherently resistant to verbalization; their impact on our bodies, memories, and consciousness often leave us speechless and silenced, or furiously incoherent. Yet, crucial issues that affect us all can only be addressed if we are willing and able to engage in sustained conversations about violence in our lives and communities. In addition to the writing skills we will acquire, I hope this course also builds our capacity to consider such difficult subjects with thoughtfulness and care.
