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 will include essays, stories, and poems by modern and contemporary writers such as: James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Gloria Anzaldua, Toni Morrison, Dorothy Allison, Amy Tan, Tim Wise, Sherman Alexie, Suheir Hammad, Junot Diaz, Ellen Gilchrist, and Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai. We will discuss the content and the style of these texts as well as engage in writing workshops, contemplative exercises, and a service learning exchange with high school writers in NYC. Writing assignments will consist of creative non-fiction, narrative criticism, and a research paper or project.
