ENG 354 - Playing at the Edges: Innovation and Non-Normativity


In this course, students will study how innovation is often a product of difference, rather than merely disruption. In so doing, they will adopt an interdisciplinary approach to explore how innovative thinking often requires certain distance from the dictations of normativity. Informed by case studies in literature, technology, music, dance, film, fashion, architecture, and more, they will ask how normativity often impedes rather than promotes discovery.
