WRIT 311 Writing and Reading the Memoir 3.0 Credits

Students will explore the problems and thrills of self-representation and self-expression through memoir. Deconstructing the work of other memoirists will show students how to develop themselves as flawed, yet likable protagonists. By the end of the course, students will be able to effectively analyze the elements of successful memoir, demonstrate an understanding of narrative theory, memory, and changing conceptions of “the self,” and articulate and implement these skills through analysis of literary texts and in construction of their own creative works.
