My Courses

Identity is a Text, Your Text

Identity is a Text, Your Text

Identity (racial, class, and gender) are very often the most important parts of our stories, not to mention the story of our society. An identity is just a story, one that you create. One way you do so is through written language, the focus of this course. Although there will be a research inquiry part of this course, what’s most important is that you improve your writing, that you consider yourself as a writer whom readers try to understand. You create the identity, you’re responsible for it. It’s challenging, likely more difficult than any ole writing class. But it will be more meaningful too.
