ARTH 506
Expository Writing Workshop Fall 2021
Division I

Class Details

This writing seminar for graduate students in Art History will afford intensive full group discussions of writing skills and substantial one-on-one writing consultations (to be held on Google Meet). Group discussions will center on three kinds of texts: Writing about writing, published writing in the discipline of Art History, and student writing in progress. In six such discussions we will improve our vocabulary and method for discussing writing; we will learn to build better and more sophisticated sentences, paragraphs, and arguments; and we will practice anticipatory reading and writing in order to strengthen our control of both voice and structure. Each discussion will be supported with both exempla and exercises, and our watchword in all cases will be “revision.” In one-on-one consultations (3-4 per person), I will offer tailored critique of each student’s work, setting aside time as needed to troubleshoot sentences, paragraphs, or arguments together.
