These writing courses are in fact interdisciplinary, but since they are not cross-listed, they’ve found a home on this page.
FIRST-YEAR SEMINAR 165: TALES FROM THE ARCHIVE
There are two basic premises to this course: you can approach writing from historical research in many different ways, and first-year students can benefit greatly from learning to do archival research early in their college careers. Building from these premises, I work with the staff at Skillman Library’s Special Collections division to guide students through research using archival collections, from which work students write both academic and creative narratives. Along the way, we read an array of intriguing texts (from mystery novels to academic biographies), attend college cultural events, and explore historical sites and museums on field trips to locations such as Bethlehem, Gettysburg, New York City, and…Lafayette College.
