Writing Against Racism

AFAM 345
Spring 2020 not offered
Certificates: Writing
Course Cluster: Writing Certificate

You are millennials, comfortable with greater diversity than older generations. You are anti-racist and against other interrelated forms of oppression. How will you make your voice heard? This seminar will explore writing that supports students in deploying their academic knowledge in public debates about immigration, abolition, feminism, and in particular, race and anti-racism. Such writing may include op-eds and letters to the editor; book, film, and music reviews; blogs; and interviews with scholars, artists, and activists. Students will write weekly and revise their work in response to comments from the instructor and their peers.
