This course will be an international fieldwork writing workshop and transnational experience. Students will conduct ethnographic fieldwork in Oaxaca, Mexico. Students' writing about Oaxacan culture will involve skills of fieldworking: looking, listening, collecting, questioning and interpreting. Through their community service fieldwork, students will question their American cultural observations in systematic ways by engaging with Oaxacan communities and writing about their experiences as seen through their eyes.
