Description

This course invites you to imagine how you might stand in solidarity with children “on the edge.” It asks you to see that boy or girl through eyes that map identity and explore survival where hierarchies determine destiny. Guest speakers, experiential learning, memoir writing, and histories of regional art enhance our study of children's narratives set around the Great Lakes, from desert islands to urban ecosystems. Stories of displaced children, indigenous youth, and runaways illustrate stormy passages. What landscape constitutes “home” in picture books, Y/A fiction, graphic novels, legends, and film for young castaways excluded or rescued at an early age? How does a sense of belonging and becoming abide within, sustaining or haunting artists through a lifetime? How do Great Lakes writers retain and preserve the settings they first encountered? In this course we recall and narrate upper mid-west memories, ideas about nature, and images of the outdoors.
