Writing Intensive Course Information

An investigation of the motives and meanings that individuals negotiate through the use of dress in presenting themselves as players in complex social contexts. The emphasis is on cross-cultural, historical, and contemporary settings.
The changes that I plan to make with the course are with the mini assignments. Instead of having 5 mini assignments with two questions each, I plan to incorporate 10 mini assignments with one question each. Students will have a writing assignment due each week (mini assignment, draft of a major paper, or a major paper). I think this will provide more consistency over the course of the semester.
