Seminar Description

The world is becoming smaller and smaller; more people traverse the globe today than ever before. From spending a weekend in a nearby town to flying clear across to the other side of the world, we move around with relative ease and a great deal of delight (or despair). Writing about our experiences can prolong the excitement and sense of wonder that the journey brought us. We can also, in this way, share it with others. Sometimes our audiences may recognize familiar places and names, other times they may have never been there but will visit, if nothing else, vicariously through our writing. Six sessions.

Badikian-Gartler holds a PhD in English from the University of Illinois at Chicago and has taught at various institutions of higher learning, including Northwestern University, Loyola University, Roosevelt University, University of Illinois, and Columbia College.
