Instructor: Ahmed
TR 8:00 – 9:20 AM

This course is a capacious exploration of language. Audre Lorde wrote, “Poetry is not only a dream and vision…It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.” Keeping with this valiant spirit, we will explore our creative visions through poetry. We will engage with writing as a practice and a vehicle for personal and cultural change. We will examine the transformative qualities of poetry together, through the lens of several types of poetry—poetry about hauntings and ghosts, poetry of witness, poetry of embodiment, ecopoetics, queer poetics, and more!
