ENG 300 Exposition: Writing About Travel (Gen Ed C2)
Prof. Thomas Palakeel, Department of English
This intensive writing course will dovetail perfectly with your travels. In addition to class writing workshops, you will take notes on your experiences and turn those into daily journal entries that you will keep in a portfolio, accompanied perhaps by photos, memorabilia, and other fascinating travel miscellanea. Along with an extensive journal assignment, you will write two formal essays. All of your writing will focus on describing, narrating, and analyzing the ways in which daily interaction with a new culture can affect and change you, the traveler. Alumni of the Travel Writing class taught abroad comment that it helped them process and remember even the smallest details of their overseas experience.
