Lives and Times: Place & Identity
Prof. Laura Williamson Ambrose

Place—whether comprised of individual rooms, regional landscapes, cities, or even entire countries—has the power to both shape and reflect identity. Throughout this online course, we will explore why who we are is largely dependent on where we are.

Collectively, the memoir, play and short stories that form our reading list will offer preliminary answers to these questions as they invite us into the lives of fictional characters and actual historical figures from times past. Assignments include an analytic paper, a personal digital memoir project, and an interactive timeline project. Online discussion and weekly blogging are also required.

Summer term: May 24 to July 31
