WRIT 1440 - FWS: Writing the Self: Mind, Body, Self

Fall or Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

First-Year Writing Seminar.

J. Sands.

The purpose of this course is to develop our skills as writers in order to competently navigate the communication and expression of thought for academic success. We will practice reading, writing, and discussing ideas with purpose. The framework of thought to help us study our writing will examine the relationships between mind and bodies, and what that means for having a sense of self. In short, we examine being-in-the-world. Many questions in this course pertain to relationships: How does the mind relate to the body; how does the body relate to the environment; how do I feel connected to myself and others? This course takes an interdisciplinary approach and incorporates materials from biology, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.
