LIT 3607.0001: Mad, Bad, & Dangerous (Hicks)

Spring 2018

What does it mean to be an author? For English majors and minors who have completed Intro to Creative Writing, this class will look at how authors are portrayed in films, novels, and an eclectic mix of other texts from various time periods and genres. We will discuss what stereotypes and tropes surround the portrayal of authors (including gender and race), why we find these characters fascinating, and what's missing from our culture's portrait of the author. We will also discuss how the idea of the author as persona shapes writers as public figures and affects students' perceptions of themselves and their work. The work of the course will include analytical writing, group projects, and a final creative piece where students will create their own portrayal of an author.

This course can count as a creative writing elective.
