Kresge CollegeKRSG 85S Critical Writing Practicum: Subject and System

Writing practicum. Students investigate social epistemology and ontology—the "how do we know" and "what do we mean" questions—surrounding the idea of systems and subjects. Questions might include, but are not limited to: What systems in society do we identify when we identify systemic racism, or other systemic bias? Is "society" an object that we can know, and if so, does our knowledge of it privileges systems and structures? Students consider these concepts and questions as broad starting points for weekly reflective and analytical writing, with a concentration on research-driven non-fiction writing.
