One of the most daunting challenges a writer faces is to effectively portray the "other"--anyone whose life experience and way of relating to the world significantly differ from those of the writer. At a time when the nation is wracked by racial division, this challenge is particularly crucial when a writer attempts to examine those of another race. This course will explore key questions around trying to overcome "otherness." Students will learn the skills a writer must employ to examine the other, and the enormous consequences if the writer fails.
