INST 2614 - Reading and Writing in African-American Literatures - Writing Intensive

Hours: 3
Through topical, thematic, written investigations of African-American literature, students will explore the ways racial identity in the United States both shapes and has been shaped by the literary arts. Discussions will situate literature in regional, national, transnational, colonial, postcolonial, diasporic, or global contexts; investigate its power as a catalyst for self-discovery, communal survival, and social justice; and explore the transformative power of creative expression. While developing close reading, analytical, and research skills, students will engage with knowledge that encourages deeper understanding and appreciation of the role of the arts across a diversity of human cultures and contexts, including how the arts engage questions of human meaning and purpose. Writing assignments are designed to help students sharpen their drafting, critiquing, and revision skills while writing autobiographically, reflectively, critically, or creatively.
Prerequisites: ENGL 1155 or HNRS 1500 or INST 1501, 1502, or 1503.
Notes: Cross-listed with ENGL 2230.
