CRN: 22256 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lucas B. Pingel This course will explore poetry's intersection with jazz music, and the uniquely American brand of poetry that results. Students will become familiarized with some of the rich history of jazz as a music of innovation and of protest, and learn about some of the most significant musicians (John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingues, for example) to inspire poets to move beyond typical conventions in literature. This course will maintain a foundation in developing strong reading, writing, and analytical skills through a variety of written assignments about authors such as Langston Hughes, Frank O'Hara, Bob Kaufman and Sonia Sanchez. The minimum writing load for this course is 15 formal revised pages. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
