For more information please visit http://www.provost.pitt.edu/students/student-success-flexpitt/flex-pitt-guarded-risk-posture-full-cohort-classroom "Between Fact and Imagination" This seminar addresses diverse definitions and understandings of fact and imagination and how these figure into creative works. Students are invited to explore these complex and shifting relations with respect to their own writing and with a select set of readings. We will explore work by a number of contemporary writers whose work is inflected by or intersects with other modes of artistic practice, looking chiefly at book-length projects by Don Mee Choi, Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, Deborah Paradez, Anthony Cody, Tommye Blount, to name a few.
