CO301A Writing in the Humanities

In this course you will address topics and issues of interest in the arts and humanities in this course. Although you may sometimes write to readers well educated in the arts and humanities, your work in CO301 is not designed to substitute for disciplinary writing in your field. Rather, CO301A assumes that you will write to more general audiences, including readers of Smithsonian, National Geographic, Atlantic Monthly, the Times Literary Supplement, the Denver Post Arts section, or even the Triangle Review. Assignments might include critiques of performances or exhibitions, analyses of university and community policies regarding arts and humanities, or arguments about controversial topics in arts and humanities.
