Advanced Nonfiction Workshop
ENGL 326
Spring 2024
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

In this upper-level nonfiction workshop, we will read texts that investigate the meanings of place, particularly as they concern intersecting intimacies and violences of home, of migration, of colonial settlement, of environmental racism, and of climate crisis. Being from, leaving, and returning to both actual and imagined spaces are often at stake in these texts, as are forms of enclosure, naming, and mapping. Questions about how language moves on a page are inextricable from these concerns. Your own writing will include short exercises and experiments, a longer essay, revision, and responses to the published work, and throughout the semester, we will attend collectively to your work, as well as to these published texts. This course is part of the Sustainability and Environmental Justice Pedagogical Initiative.
