Prerequisites: 76-260, 76-270, 76-271, 76-372 or 76-472 While culture becomes increasingly obsessed with celebrities, contemporary literary journalism is writing that usually focuses on so called "ordinary" people in various social contexts. The emphasis is to use the journalistic essay to reveal character rooted in and influenced by a particular time and place. Students will be required to do a series of short essays, and one long essay, on subjects of their own choosing. These essays will almost always involve field research; one goal of the course will be to acquaint students with research techniques and methods. This is both a reading and writing intensive course, and will be run usually as a workshop. The class is designed for both professional writing and creative writing students.
