Immersion Journalism
Immerse yourself in your own adventure—the blues or hip-hop or poetry slam scenes in Houston, the city's trail of bayous, the lives of immigrants or refugees, patients grappling with disease, a religious tradition, some subculture or underground trend—and then write about. This course involves a two-part strategy—critical reading and creative practice—in order to give you the practical tools you need to engage in this kind of participatory writing.  We will read widely in the field of Immersion Journalism to generate techniques for our own individual research and exploration.  And as we work on these immersive projects, we will workshop them collaboratively to craft polished pieces. No experience required. Curiosity is the only prerequisite!.Counts toward the Medicine & Society Minor, Creative Work Minor, and Leadership Studies Minor.
