ENGL 347 A: Race and Nonfiction

This class focuses on non-fiction writing as a primary way to engage our various contemporary cultural and social “crises” from multiple perspectives. Ranging from memoir to reportage, criticism to political punditry, these works not only demonstrate the range of possibilities available in non-fiction but also provide an ongoing narrative of our changing racial realities and our rapidly transforming notions of “the real.”
