Do you feel limited to writing about your own experiences? Do you wonder how to hone your research skills? This course will walk through how to reach out to people for interviews, how to conduct interviews, and how to navigate some of the challenges that arise when you interview. Students will read excerpts from Students would look at excerpts from Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee and The Great Believers by Rebessa Makkai, which were written based on interviews, as well as examples of interviews in the news. They will also practice interviewing each other and write up a short excerpt based on their interview.
