55-4408J Jazz, Blues, Slavery & Voodoo: Reading & Writing New Orleans


Course explores the use of setting as character, expand the knowledge and appreciation of Southern writers, and learn to successfully incorporate issues of race, class, gender, and the distinct social and political views of the region into their writing to create a depth and subtext often missing from contemporary writing. The readings will explore a broad array of Southern authors writing about slavery, the peculiar social status of quadroons and free men of color, the effects past and present of the Civil War, and life tours, and cultural activities unique to New Orleans. Students will have the opportunity to interact directly with writers, musicians, and other practitioners of New Orleans culture.
