Description

How do different people write about moving to new locations and make sense of the circumstances behind their uprooting? This course will use the telling and re-telling of stories of migration and displacement as a means for sharpening participants’ thinking and writing. We will seek to understand how art helps us see the ethical, psychological, social and cultural implications of migration. Our sources will include literary texts, historical documents, comics, journalistic and autobiographical writing, photographs, film and TV that address themes such as home and displacement, belonging and exile, multilingualism and translation.

Course Requirements:

The grading for this course will consist of three long composition assignments in the form of essays, to be submitted via canvas during the semester; short writing assignments, submitted in preparation for classroom discussion on canvas; and an evaluation of the student’s participation in class discussions and peer-review workshops. Students will be provided with specific guidelines for the writing assignments and for course participation. Students will be able to choose topics for writing assignments and develop their interests, in consultation with the instructor.

Intended Audience:

Instruction will be undertaken in hybrid form, combining in-person classroom encounters (on Wednesdays) with online synchronous meetings and asynchronous assignments and small group projects (on Fridays).

Class Format:

This course will use Canvas for all asynchronous online components. Links to other platforms utilized – such as UMMA and library resources – will be provided on canvas. Online meetings will be conducted through Zoom. Students should have internet access, a camera and a microphone.
