LALIMI | CANCELED: Witches, Vampires, and Zombies, Oh My!: Monsters and the Occult in the American Imagination

This course will explore the ways in which American television, film, and fiction have made use of the character of “the monster” (including zombies, vampires, werewolves, and shape shifters) and idea of “the occult” (witches and witchcraft, “voodoo,” and spirit possession, etc). We will ask questions like: What does it mean to be human? Who or what is a monster? How are the two different? How are the worlds of monsters and the occult different from “the real world?” To what ends—political, religious, economic, racial—have images of monsters and the occult been used in recent American popular entertainment?

Writers Studio Memoir Writing: Exploring Structure 02/15/2016 to 03/7/2016

WSMWES | Memoir Writing: Exploring Structure

When we write about true life events, it is sometimes difficult to know where to begin. As a result, we often start too far back in our narratives. Chronological order often makes sense in stories about our lives, but moving through time often inclines writers to include too much back story. In this workshop we will explore different ways to structure memoirs that will allow you to discover your intent, get to the heart of your story and illuminate what you have come to say in a given essay.
