How is the personal political? How do personal stories and histories offer models of reckoning with race, immigration, belonging, justice, and nationhood? How is the critical made creative and the creative made critical? This course examines how creative non-fiction imagines social transformation and builds paths toward racial consciousness and solidarity. Through the many forms of creative non-fiction— autobiography, essay, memoir, testimonio, and travelogue, among others—we explore the connections between personal and local experiences of oppression and national and global forms of racism, coloniality, and empire in our current moment.
