"Reading Early Modern Recipes" will introduce you to some recipe books that allow us a glimpse into the life of an early modern (roughly 1500-1700) British household. We will talk about how to read a recipe as literature, what kinds of evidence we can find in these texts of the lives of early modern women, and how these recipes shed light on the larger context of Empire.".

Where does a short story come from, and how do you find that first impulse to start writing one?  There’s no single answer. It might be a world you want to explore, either one you already know well, or something you need to research or invent. It might be a story you want to tell from your own experience, or cultural inheritance, or an outlandish what-if. Or it might be a voice you want to inhabit: a particular perspective, or a certain way of using language, even if you don't yet know what world or story it belongs to.  Using a blend of writing exercises, and readings of contemporary short fiction, we explore the many exciting possibilities of the form.
