The Literature of Fact: Writing About Culture

Rachel Donadio

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

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.

If the course fills, you may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
