CRWT 212 The Short Story

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

A short story shows movement or change. Its readers feel that they have been somewhere distinct. What types of places and changes are characteristic of the history and present of the short story? Through creative projects that advance critical inquiry, this course will provide students with a historical framework to help them analyze literary patterns and identify opportunities for their own writing and artistic practice. The course will begin with fairy tales and myths and advance through postmodernism, realism, and a consideration of the future of the short story.
