Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021. Courses of Study 2021-2022 is scheduled to publish by July 1.

The primary work of this course is researching, editing, and writing articles about poetry on Wikipedia.  The course follows two related tracks: studying poetry and learning how to make it accessible to others.  Verse analysis and research and writing skills will be emphasized.  Students will be responsible for expanding or creating three Wikipedia articles about poetry.  At least one new article should be submitted for publication on Wikipedia.  As a background to our work, we will consider Wikipedia in the context of both the history of encyclopedias and the digital humanities.  A particular focus of our reading and writing will be under-represented poets and poems. The goals of the course are to write about poetry with a broad audience in mind and to contribute to the world's body of knowledge about poetry.

When Offered Fall.
