Writing History with Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond

30 September 2023

Dictionary definitions will tell you history is what has been recorded, preserved in an account, or otherwise enshrined in collective memory. But because humans don’t have the capacity to record or remember everything, and no computer or hard drive has yet been built with infinite memory, human history is selective. It’s what we choose to remember, and forget. In this course, we will review historic prose and poetry.

Course outline

  • Discuss two shared recent historic events and pick one to write about.
  • Review historic prose and poetry, and “rewrite” to include a perspective/experience that has been ignored or omitted.
  • Mine a personal memory to begin an original piece.
