CRWR 218 Creative Writ:Poetry & Fiction
An introductory creative writing workshop in poetry and fiction.

ENGL 222 Cookbooks: Craft and Culture
This course will consider the cookbook as a literary form and a cultural artifact. We will focus on US texts from the last three centuries, considering how these works inflect questions of temporality, labor, ecology, and identity, among other topics. Readings will include primary texts from Bracken, Child, Chao, Lewis, Smart-Grosvenor, and Toklas along with a range of historical and theoretical secondary texts.
