EDU 195-01 - Introductory Special Topic: Encountering Iowa: Writing in Place

2 credits (Fall)
Cross-listed as: WRT 195-01 . This course will use a place-based educational framework to engage with, explore, and write about Iowa-our place-in creative ways. A special focus in our course will be the telling or accounting of often-unheard perspectives in the overall story of Iowa: as a home, landscape, and place of encounter. To that end, an element of this course will be a community-engaged component, in which we will work with a Des Moines-based non-profit organization that uses the visual and other creative arts for community empowerment and healing from trauma.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Jakubiak, D. Perez
