In this course we will examine the interaction between literature and memory, in particular how authors have responded to major historical events and have contributed to the shaping of the collective memory of those events. Using several graphic novels as prompts, you will be writing for a variety of academic and non-academic audiences. Throughout the semester, you will produce writing in the following genres: journal entry, article summary, synthetic and analytical essay, and reflection essay/creative writing.
