Writing Race and Class

Writing Race and Class
In this course we will take a literary and intersectional approach to topics of race and class. Readings include stories, essays, and poems by modern and contemporary writers, including James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Louise Erdrich, Gloria Anzaldua, Adrienne Rich, Amy Tan, Junot Diaz, and Eli Clare. Students will write short critical and creative pieces and will develop one longer essay, a critical narrative. We will engage in writing workshops and contemplative activities. Students will preferably have prior experience in discussing issues of race and class, although introductory theories will be made available to provide frameworks for discussion.
