ENG 118 The Space in Our Identity: Writing about Home

Alejandro Cuellar, T Th 10:30 AM-11:50 AM

Home is more than the physical structure we reside in. Home is where we live in every sense: the physical sense, yes, but also the spiritual, romantic, ideal, and maybe even mythical. All of these aspects of home, hometown, home country, or adopted home serve to shape our identities. In this course, we will explore the importance of these spaces, be they physical or metaphysical, to the construction of “home” and how these terms, whether we accept them wholly, shun them entirely, or experience them via travel, dictate to us and others a sense of self and identity. Can be repeated for credit with a different topic. Enrollment limited to 15.
