BLS 323: Short Reads

Woman on couch reading

This course focuses on 21st-century works by authors—many of them relatively unknown—from a diversity of social statuses, cultures, and geographical locations. Short stories and personal essays have a unique ability to bring readers into unfamiliar cultures and subcultures, and to give them a glimpse at the vast diversity of human experience. This course will seek to take advantage of that power.
