    College Writing: Dreams and Nightmares

    This course is an opportunity to explore and experiment, to dwell in uncertainty and inquiry, and entertain confusion before resolution. Whether your area of interest is the psychology of dreams, monsters, memory, desire, cognition and neuroscience, or the underbelly of the American Dream, you will find room to interrogate subjects, both real and imagined, as well as texts and theories that destabilize categories, embody possibility, and threaten established order.
