English 160: Writing About Art in Chicago Fall 2007 3 Credit Hours TR 2:30-3:45 Taft Hall 320 Instructors: Chad Heltzel Kristen Schaffenberger Office Hours: Chad Heltzel cheltz2@uic.edu R 12:00-2:00 and by appointment UH 1919 Kristen Schaffenberger kpalme3@uic.edu TR 11:00-12:00 and by appointment UH 1847 Course Description This class does not aim to define what art is. Through community exploration and engagement, student writers will complicate their preconceptions about who and what makes art, how and where the art world functions, and what it is to write meaningfully about art in Chicago. This course will additionally introduce the key concepts of genre, language, situation, and consequences. You will understand how situated writing necessitates different genre and language choices, and in turn how those writing choices further change the consequences of your writing. Because this course is especially concerned with community engagement, we will pay special attention to the ways writing can affect the community. Texts and Supplies: Anson, Chris and Robert A.
