Writing on Local Issues, Arts, and Culture

Course #: ENGL 209

This immersive writing and publishing course will take you into the center of Boston's arts and culture scene, providing you with the tools and the platform you need to develop and establish your own voice and views. From the MFA to the Massachusetts State House, from the Institute of Contemporary Art to the Boston Public Library, students will each create their own blog and publish writing that uses research and analysis to consider the history of a Boston institution and/or review an event, exhibit, culture moment, or performance. This course includes a lot of FREE field trips and independent excursions; class will meet just once a week, to facilitate this. A major assignment in this course may be included in a Writing Requirement portfolio. This is a hands-on, interactive course designed with the support of the Mellon Foundation.
