Course Instructor Days Times Room


In this course, we will explore the relationship between writing and communities. Key questions this course will consider include: What is the role of writing and written texts in the formation and maintenance of communities? How do technologies and media affect communities and shape community writing practices? How can writers contribute to their communities in productive ways? For the service-learning component of this course, we will be working with one of UGA’s Public Service and Outreach units, the Archway Partnership, to help tell them tell the stories of Archway's work with rural communities in Georgia and of the work UGA faculty and students do to support and assist those communities in accomplishing their goals. Develop your writing skills as you learn more about the UGA community and the larger Georgia community and work on "real-world" projects to deliver written products to our community partners.

This course fulfills the Experiential Learning Requirement.
