New York Stories
New York: what is it about the city that attracts so many? There are millions and millions of stories. In this seminar, we will study and analyze some of the poems, essays, fiction and journalistic writings that attempt to define the identity of the city. When does a person become a New Yorker? What makes New York unique? In class discussions, in posts to a class blog and in focused excursions around the city, we will discover our own “New York Stories.” We will add to the city’s seemingly endless tales in formal writing assignments and final multimedia projects.
