Upcoming Courses

FICTION

Book 1 Workshop

Designed to be taken in advance of next spring semester’s Book 2 Workshop, students will focus on generating the first 50–75 pages of prospective book-length manuscripts. These books-in-process will be workshopped by all. Novels, novellas, short story collections and novels-in-stories are all forms welcome to be presented for critique, and we will attend to various questions of those forms in relationship to the types of books students in the workshop have decided to generate.

LITERATURE

Temporalities, Labor, and Leisure in the Anthropocene

The cultural norms surrounding work are among the most powerful in contemporary life. [...] These work norms and their associated regimes of temporality tend to seem natural and inviolate, but in fact, they are a relatively recent invention. This seminar investigates that fact, inquiring into the threads of time, labor, and leisure to trace their history and to map possible futures in the Anthropocene, “the age of humans.”
