What is creativity? How do creative ideas emerge? Is the “creative personality” depressed and more often than not distressed by the indignities of living? What is the relationship between creativity and social justice activism? Such questions are at the core of our readings and investigations into imagination and creativity. Our readings focus on brain-based, psychoanalytic, and ethical discussions of creativity that are illustrated, challenged, and deepened by texts of the most innovative writers, Anne Carson and Toni Morrison.
