GLS 564 - Composing a Self: Autobiography from the Margins

Credits: (3)
In this course, we will read a range of contemporary autobiographies and memoirs and explore how writers compose their lives, construct an identity, and create a somewhat coherent self often against enormous, personal, societal, and cultural obstacles. We will read the autobiographical work of authors who have been socially marginalized, due to race, gender, ethnicity, mental illness, or socio-economics.
