Course DescriptionThis course examines a variety of life-writing genres including the diary, letter, autobiography, memoir, and biography. By sampling a range of texts (both print and electronic) throughout history, students will explore diverse ways in which writers express their private and public stories about life and self. Students will gain an understanding of life-writing theory which can be used to rethink the relationships between gender and genre; fact and fiction; and art and artlessness.
NotesThis course will require you to be online for live lectures at the scheduled time. There will also be some pre-recorded lectures. Class recordings will be available until the end of the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
