WoW: Methodologies, Methods, and Imagination will use Indigenous theory and content to expand academic and creative writing through a community writing process, as well as comparing and contrasting Western content to gain multiple perspectives. We will take stock of Indigenous, anti-colonial, and “post-colonial” imaginations and story-telling in relation to the academy and undergraduate writing demands. This course will begin with an overview of the writing process, elements of close reading and academic writing, then move into research methodology and method through critical thinking. Three rhetorical modes will guide research and self-expression: Definition, Persuasion, and First-Person Narration. With a strong focus on self-knowledge and personal writing style, this will be an inclusive environment for any student wanting to strengthen their academic writing, creative writing, critical thinking, and research skills. All are welcome.
