Primary Instructor:

What if I told you the Final Fantasy videogame series was one of the greatest works of world literature in the past twenty years? Would you agree or disagree? How could you convince a skeptical reader that Ghost in the Shell is more pertinent to our times than Shakespeare? In this course, while practicing academic writing, we will assert the value and importance of popular culture as an object of academic study. We will read essays on cultural theory and address current trends such as cyberpunk and steampunk, while learning the writing skills needed to help you succeed in college. Students are invited to explore their own cultural interests from hip-hop to video games by creating a writing portfolio. No knowledge of any particular sub-culture is needed for this course, only an interest in writing about something you love.

This writing course focuses on the creation of complex, analytic, well-supported arguments that matter in academic contexts. Students work closely with their peers and the instructor to develop their written prose. Readings cover a variety of different genres and academic disciplines.

We will become proficient academic writers by practicing writing, in a comfortable and collaborative classroom environment. In order to better understand patterns in our own writing, we will seek and provide feedback at each stage of writing. Individually and in groups, we will ask and answer questions when planning, during writing, and when evaluating papers, with the goal of developing a clearer understanding of the writing process. This circle of feedback from peers/instructor will help us improve composition and develop a more realistic view of the writing process. We will learn to anticipate the needs and expectations of our readers; develop skills for structuring and framing arguments; and to revise our writing in a productive manner.
