This course examines what it means to be shaped by the regions, homes, landscapes, and architectures that humans exist within. Students explore the reciprocal relationship between place, culture and identity formation, and literature expression. Understanding that these factors shape humans, literature, and imagination, students will question just how much interaction occurs between place, human life, and story.

Students in this course read a wide range of texts—novels, plays, poems, short stories, and nonfiction—from diverse regions, time periods, voices, and perspectives. Through critical engagement with these texts, students develop their own perspectives and voices. Students discuss, write about, and present their ideas in formal academic language as well as in more personal and affirming ways.
