Non-Fictional Prose 2010 - Web Paper 3

This is the third set of web papers to emerge from Facing the Facts, a course about category-making offered at Bryn Mawr College in Fall 2010. Three months into the semester, students are reporting in from our classroom explorations of the graphic adaptation of the 9/11 Commission Report; Path to Paradise: The Inner World of Suicide Bombers; The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; and The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark--as well as questions arising therefrom.

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, others in the class, or those who--exploring the internet--might be in search of thoughtful conversation about how we are making sense, in a variety of non-fictional forms, of the world in which we find ourselves?
