ENGLIT 1412: Secret Pittsburgh

This course is inspired by the Secret [city name here] series of travel books that pride themselves on being “local guides by local people.” As such, the class offers you the chance to embrace the viewpoint of these books by striving to “look more closely at the urban landscape and to see your own city with the curiosity and attention that we often display while traveling elsewhere.”
