Credits: 3 credits
Students examine memoirs as a unique sub-genre included under the umbrella term "Life Writing." Through close reading of example narratives from different places and times, students understand the main differences between traditional autobiographies and the memoir form. Students also consider how women in particular have found the memoir form to be a useful tool of self-representation in various contexts.
Prerequisite: Six credits of first-year English (with the exception of ENGL 1150) or equivalent AND completion of 45 credits or permission of the instructor or department chair
