Many Voices Project

Each year the Augsburg English Department chooses a common "Many Voices" text for Effective Writing courses -- one that illuminates issues of diversity. Professors, staff, and students across the campus are encouraged to participate in the project.

2017 Many Voices Reading: Ru

The Many Voices Project invites you to enter into a dialogue with other minds, so you might encounter ideas that are different than your own. Part of the dialogue will be with the text itself, as you reflect on it, write about it, and discuss it with other people in class. During the 2017–2018 academic year, the Many Voices Project features Kim Thúy's novel Ru.   Since Thúy's work is the common text for all ENL 111 sections this year, you may find that your conversation about the text continues outside of Effective Writing, perhaps in a professor’s office or other classroom, in the dorm, at meals, or over coffee.
