FYW-1249 Life Writing: Autobiography and History


This seminar uses autobiography as a conduit to help students explore key developments in history and their own evolving sense of self. By reading a diverse group of autobiographical authors-male/female, white, African-American, Native-American, Hispanic, prominent/obscure, rich/poor-students will use the self-referential content of life writing to explore the dynamics of American history and its narrative nature while constructing their own life story over the course of the semester. 4 credits.
