Special Topic: Novel Forms|
In this special topics course, we will undertake a study and writing in long-form prose work. While our primary examples might most easily be classified "fiction," we may also engage periodically in complicating such designation. Engagement with the reading list will be based upon arising concerns within current and more historical pieces. Classroom discussion will help us develop a series of theories and practices beyond the pale of the standardized.
