This final project asks students to conceptualize and design an undergraduate course related to the study of emotions. This “un-essay” assignment gives students the opportunity to analyze emotions in relation to a topic of their own choosing and to engage with their own learning process by reflecting on how syllabi shape the way we learn about history.
Vietnam War Un-Essay Project
This "un-essay" assignment, which was used in an upper-level class on the Vietnam War, provides an alternate option for students' final research project--one that encourages creativity and experimentation in multimedia. The assignment prompt also defines the un-essay, offers examples from other courses, and provides evaluation criteria.
