Course Description:
Urban America has a rich history of intercultural exchange, but it also has a troubling history of segregation and racial tension and conflict. In New York, we’ll visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chelsea Market, and important public spaces. In Milwaukee, we’ll explore the Milwaukee Art Museum, Lake Park, and other important places in the life of the city. Together we will examine the “melting pot” concept through “high” art, music, food, and fashion as well as public “green” spaces in cities. Students will gain practical writing skills from exercises in this creative writing course.
