RFLA 100H 10 - Memoir as Literature (CRN 10762)


How do you tell the story of your life? How do race, class, gender, sexuality, and generational identity contribute to one’s personal story? In this course, we will attempt to answer these questions as we consider the concept of memoir as we examine traditional contributions to the genre, as well as non-linear, visual texts. Also, we will discuss the American Confessionalist movement and its impact on this genre. Finally, we will address how memoir is informed by-and informs-other cultural texts, such as television, film, and social media.
