How to transcribe the self? How is a self created, examined, or reinvented through storytelling? Is cultural context inextricable from self-writing?

During the course of the term, students will also produce their own autobiographical/autofictional projects. Offered at both the 200 and 300 levels, and coursework will be adjusted accordingly.
