About Us

“The streets of London have their map, but our passions are uncharted. What are you going to meet if you turn this corner?” Virginia Woolf, Jacob’s Room

Andre Derain, London Bridge, 1906

We are a group of students from Georgia Tech taking English Composition 1102, “Transnational Modernist Poetry,” with Dr. Wendy Truran.

This class critically examines culture and communication through Written, Oral, Visual, Electronic, and Nonverbal (WOVEN) modalities. The class explores Modernist poetry as a way to identify complex problems and develop multifaceted solutions. We analyze poetry, art, and culture from the early 20th century as means of strengthening our skills in composition, communication, and argumentation.

Our assignment was to compose a multimodal essay focusing on “the Modern city,” drawing connections between a Modernist city and our own city that we live in.

Fernand Leger, The City, 1919
