Creative Writing: Fiction (Upper: Summer 2018)
18a-CWFIC
Stephen King once wrote, "If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot." In this class, students will do both. Writing is a craft. We will proceed step by step through the major elements of basic fiction writing including: Beginnings and Endings, Setting, Voice, Characterization, Dialogue, Plot, Conflict, Narration, and Style. Students will read short stories, and excerpts from novels to better understand the craft behind some of our favorite stories. The point is to not only analyze the stories, but to identify techniques and devices that can be used in your own creative work. In addition to reading and analysis, students will fulfill the other requirement listed by Stephen King- writing. Students will write every week culminating in a final project that will span the second half of the class. The final project will be a short story or beginning of a novel. The primary text will be The Art and Craft of Fiction: A Writer's Guide by Michael Kardos. More

Food in Human Society (Upper: Summer 2018)
18a-FOODI
What could be more important than food? Air and water, sure. Maybe love? Okay, maybe. Maybe. But that’s about it. What you eat and how you eat, and who you eat with is one of the most important and revealing facts about you as a person, and about the society in which you live. In this interdisciplinary course, we will take food seriously. We will ask how human diets have changed over the past twelve thousand years, and what these transformations mean both for us and for our planet. Along the way, we will discuss such diverse topics as the MSG headache, the psychology of disgust, why cola hipsters prefer Mexican Coke, the chemistry of fermentation, the surprising origins of Corn Flakes, and the ethics of eating animals. We will draw connections between physiology, geography, ecology, archaeology, history, economics, technology, art, and culture. Also, we will cook (and eat) a lot of food. More
