Reading California
General Catalog Course Title:
Reading and Composition
Terms Offered:
Spring 2012

This course will examine literature produced in and about California.  After grounding our inquiries with Indigenous stories and questions of performance, we will then explore the convergences of narrative, geography, identity, and economics as portrayed by California writers from the Gold Rush to the present.  Our inquiries will engage a range of perspectives, offering students a chance to read widely about California and conduct research about a topic of great personal interest.
