WRT 272G - Intensive Course Abroad (4 Cr.)
SUMMER 2018 Offering:
TRAVEL WRITING IN CURACAO
This course asks you to explore the craft and the ethics of travel writing. The best travel writing offers readers an understanding of a country’s culture and history beyond the requisite descriptions of food and sunsets. While you visit and study on the Caribbean-Dutch island of Curacao, you will learn about the history of the island, and how this continues to impact life for Curacao’s citizens, residents, and tourists. Curacao’s unique mix of languages and religions, together with Curacao’s economic and environmental struggles, provide a prime opportunity to understand a reporter’s ethical responsibilities.. Explore these issues in depth while you explore Curacao’s culture, history, economy, and beauty. Preference will be given to Creative Writing minors, Professional Writing minors, and English Majors with the Creative Writing Concentration. Prerequisite: WRT 181 or WRT 181H or FYS 100W or College Writing Proficiency (CWP). Summer 2018. Poliakoff-Chen.
