ENGL 374 - Experimental Fiction Laboratory
Semester Offered: Fall
This course examines strangeness as a modality of craft in which analysis and innovation meet, taking seriously the notion that the text is constructed through layered processes of experiment and revision. Throughout the semester, we explore varied approaches to strangeness, reading both aesthetic manifestos and creative works. We treat our classroom as a laboratory of sorts, engaging the techniques we explore through a short series of writing exercises aimed at practicing various procedures and approaches. Finally, we ask, what’s the point of strangeness? What do strange texts do?
