CCCX 216 Write in Place

Offered in specific geographical locations, this course enables students to participate in creative ecosystems built around a community of interest in writing, reading, literature, narrative, and other art forms that include a written component. Through an on-site, immersive experience, students engage with the culture of each place in order to see their work in the context of other writers’ and artists’ work. Students examine the personal and social contexts for creativity, with special attention to the roles of location, culture, and history on creative identity and expression. Students reflect upon how, as creative individuals, they respond to the world around them, and to consider the ethical implications for cultural representation in literary and artistic forms, while exploring possibilities afforded by cross-cultural and collaborative experiences. Through their own creative practice and scholarly endeavor, students are encouraged to interrogate and challenge traditional assumptions and understandings of the creative communities they engage with, locally and globally, and to locate themselves within their creative continuum.
