About this Unit
This unit focuses on new, innovative, interdisciplinary genres of writing arising after the putative end of critique and with the rise of non-representational thought. These new writing practices mix genres and meld theoretical, critical and creative modes. Focusing on fictocriticism, creative nonfiction, documentary fiction and the multi-media essay, we explore the experimental ethos and affective and new materialist methodologies to which these forms lend themselves. Students will develop a body of original creative-critical work in any genre through a series of seminars and writing workshops.
