This course introduces students to literature and texts addressing inequality and social justice. Questions will include: What is social justice? How do writers reproduce or resist dominant ideologies? How does literature and other texts provide tools to map social and economic formations? What role does writing play in social movements? How might scholarship on the rhetoric of social movements push at creative and non-fiction works? Readings and comparison of these texts will help examine how writing around social justice mobilizes for change. Students will explore social justice issues that resonate to them and develop their own writing projects that advance awareness of their peers, push their peers to get out of imagined silos of social justice interest, and build bridges through writing between communities of interest to them.
