INST 2618 - Reading and Writing in LGBTQ Literatures - Writing Intensive

Hours: 3
Through topical, thematic investigations of literature and writing in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities and cultures, exploring the ways identity 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 sharpen drafting, critiquing, and revision skills while writing autobiographically, reflectively, critically, or creatively.
Notes: Cross-listed with ENGL 2234. Repeatable to a maximum of 6 credits.
