ENGL 235 - Life Stories: Memoir, Essay, Biography


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 112  or ENGL 192  / HONR 192 
True stories utilize narrative devices to convey factual information about real people. Descriptive language and unique structures can elevate a life story artistically and dive deeply into an author/subject’s history and community(ies). While memoir, essay, and biography have been traditionally associated with personal nonfiction, this course will also examine other formats of autobiographical and biographical storytelling such as: the biopic film; full-length or short documentary films; flash memoir; comic-strips/graphic novels; and/or podcasts.
