How do you identify trends? Or crystallize a moment? Or write a sharp critical review or a revealing profile of an artist? How have social media and new streaming technologies changed how we produce and consume culture? This writing-intensive seminar will focus on how to tackle culture -- low and high, new and older -- and will place an emphasis on developing skills with broad application, including how to conduct interviews, develop a voice and compose strong, clear arguments. Students will examine the varieties of culture they consume and will develop and share their impressions in their own written work.
