  Language and literacy have always served as lightning rods for social and political issues, as well as for conflicts of theory and practice in education. This course will explore the contemporary teaching of writing, with attention to the range of current pedagogies in US colleges. We will examine influences of 20th-century revival of rhetoric, process and post-process writing, cultural and feminist studies, cognitive theory, the digital revolution, and the implications of "the global turn" for 21st-century students and teachers of writing.

    Cross-listing: ENGL-446-01
  The Renaissance was a period of profound scientific discovery, especially in the realm of medicine, illness, and human physiology. In this course, we explore how Renaissance thinking on the body impacted literature, and how literary works, in turn, shaped how people thought about the implications-physical, social, ethical, even spiritual-of scientific and medical discoveries. Topics include anatomy, approaches to birth and death, the borderline between medicine and magic, Renaissance conceptions of mental health, and responses to infectious disease. Students will encounter these topics in a wide range of genres. Texts will include plays by Shakespeare and others; the poetry of John Donne and Edmund Spenser; prose accounts of witchcraft, madness, and scientific inquiry.
2390 ENGL-874-90 Race & Realism: African-Am Lit 1.00 SEM Mrozowski, Daniel T: 6:15PM-9:30PM N/A HUM  
  Enrollment limited to 3 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote Course Length: 10 weeks
    Cross-listing: AMST-874-90, ENGL-474-90
  Coming of age in the ruins of Reconstruction, the encroachment of Jim Crow laws, and waves of great migration, African American writers of the early 20th century shaped American literature in powerful and often-forgotten ways. Their texts, published in the decades before the Harlem Renaissance, offer an opportunity to consider how people produce literature under the pressures of structural racism; how art might respond to the terrorism of state sanctioned violence; how genres might stretch to articulate the psychological complexities of social and self identities; and how writers appeal to audiences, construct communities, forge friendships, and speak truth to power, despite institutional ambivalence and resistance to their voices. Course readings will come from Charles Chesnutt, Pauline Hopkins, Alice Dunbar Nelson, WEB Du Bois and others. For English majors, this course satisfies the requirement of a course emphasizing literature written post-1900.
