College Writing and Rivka Galchen’s Atmospheric Disturbances

I am very happy that my college writing I students find Rivka Galchen’s Atmospheric Disturbances an enjoying and interesting read. This is the last section of my new College Writing I syllabus on the brain and writing.

As Professor Tammy Clewell and Brittany Adams pointed out yesterday after their talk on neuroscience and literature studies, neuronovels, including this one by Galchen, are detective stories. I am glad that they got me to thinking about that yesterday, because I brought that into the lively discussion during today’s class.

I also owe my students a debt of gratitude for their efforts and attention during this first week of discussing the novel.

I will provide a full reflection on Galchen’s novel in the writing classroom after we finish discussing it next week.
