ISP 273 The Stories We Tell

3 hours 

This course explores the many ways in which we communicate by telling and retelling stories - in novels, eye-witness accounts, legal testimony, psychiatric case studies, biographies, memoirs, historical chronicles, and even logical arguments. Students will not only reflect upon and communicate their own stories, but also analyze a variety of texts in terms of voice and audience, point of view, factual or fictional status, and assumptions or outcomes.
