No prerequisites except an openness to learning. To apply, send a statement of interest of up to 400 words to kip.m.chow@alumni.ubc.ca describing any knowledge and lived experience of neurodivergence you bring to the seminar and what you hope to gain from taking the course&~ . ┬áThis course fulfills general upper-level ENGL requirements.
