Writing About Places

ENGL 131
Spring 2018
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CGST 131
Certificates: Writing

This course is one in a series called "writing about places" exploring the long tradition of writing about travel and places and changing attitudes toward crossing cultural and geographical borders. Readings will focus largely on the writings of 20th-century travelers and will include an examination of the phenomenon of migration. 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, and histories. Writing assignments will include critical and analytical essays and will encourage students to examine their own experiences with places and cultural encounters.
