Writing About Places: Africa
ENGL 131
Fall 2011 not offered

This course is the latest in a series called "writing about places" that explores the long tradition of writing about travel and places and changing attitudes toward crossing cultural borders, this spring with a focus on Africa. We will examine historical and cultural interactions/confrontations as portrayed by both insiders and outsiders, residents and visitors, colonizers and colonized, and from a variety of perspectives: fiction, literary journalism, travel accounts, histories. Writing assignments will include critical and analytical essays and will encourage students to examine their own experiences with places and cultural encounters.
