ENGL 307: Fresh/ Local/ Wild: The Poetics of Food (4). Prerequisites: Three credits in 200-level English and Instructor consent. Students must submit writing samples to qualify for admission. ENGL 203 and/or 204 recommended. Limited enrollment. This class visits fresh/local/wild food venues each week, where sensory explorations focus on all aspects of foraging, creating, adapting and eating food. Coursework includes guided writing exercises based on the landscape/geography of food both in the field and classroom, with in-depth readings that help us turn topics like food politics, food insecurity, sustainable agriculture and genetically modified foods into poetry. Individual handmade chapbooks of the term’s poems serve as the final product. A service learning component is also included in the course through Campus Kitchen. (HA) Miranda.
