Jour 474: Cultural Reporting and Criticism


In this course, criticism will be taught as a discrete writing form, one separate from opinion-based or editorial writing, and one that demands the very best of both reporting and writing. Students in this course will learn how to evaluate artistic expression from within a larger social and cultural context and to wrestle with and articulate those themes in their own writing, Students will also be encouraged to cultivate a point of view in their writing, and to write in their own voice while still writing in the third person.
