WRI 1100: Disciplinary Research&Wrtg Sem (47203) (2019-2020)

View all WRI classes

This section of WRI 1100, offered by an English professor, teaches academic research and writing in the humanities. Students will explore a variety of ways to analyze and write about literature, culture, and personal identities at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality through an examination of Nella Larsen’s novel Passing. The course continues the academic inquiry and writing skills of WRI 1000 by incorporating the elements and standards of college-level research and writing within a disciplinary context. Students use writing throughout the term as a tool to investigate and communicate information and ideas and to approach and answer complex questions. Key elements include learning to develop good research questions and lines of inquiry; writing in appropriate disciplinary genres; understanding the proper use of primary and secondary sources; evaluating, summarizing, analyzing, and synthesizing research; revising writing so as to develop and deepen ideas; and producing a culminating paper or project.
