This course introduces students to the practices, networks, and traditions that sustain the work of writing and storytelling in their myriad forms. Bridging the divide between creative and academic literary contexts, the course explores a range of histories, methods, and critical interventions to illuminate what it means to write within and for a given community. Examining key institutions of literary culture, scholarship, and community building (e.g., archives, movements, readings, journals, conferences), students will become familiar with the social processes that support literary research and will collaborate on final creative-scholarly projects.
