Special Topics: Merging Forms
ENGL 224
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

In this workshop for first- and second-year students, we will explore works that unsettle, cross, merge, hybridize, and otherwise play with genres--fiction, poetry, nonfiction--and with readers' expectations of such boundaries and conventions. We will look closely at how a range of writers both depend on and interrogate definitions of genre, while keeping in mind that such definitions are themselves historical constructs. Students will experiment with various forms in their own work, in shorter exercises, and in longer assignments.
