Critical Thinking and Writing II WR-220
In the second semester of this course, students will further investigate the objectives of WR 110 by engaging in extensive research. Students will evaluate various theoretical and literary movements and will explore how their own subjectivity in writing is influenced by various institutions. How do the issues of difference and representation organize our understanding of race, class, ethnicity, sexuality and gender in a larger community of writers? To a larger extent, how do they influence the choices made in critical thinking and creative writing? These avenues of research will lead to a final independent research project that will serve as an invitation for students' future exploration in their creative work.
