Beyond the general aim of
introducing you to a range of research methods and related professional issues
in the field of English, this course has several goals. First, it aims to review current approaches to literary and cultural
studies, including the field of technical writing, and ways, for example, that feminist and “border”
studies enable us to engage texts from provocative points of view. Second, we will focus on basic tools
of literary scholarship and the kinds of questions—and answers—that lead to
productive library research. Our purpose in doing that is to go beyond “Google”
and to become adept with the use of various print and electronic resources as
well as appropriate research strategies. Third,
we will examine specific bibliographical, critical, and textual problems; this will
give us further practical experience in collecting research materials, weighing
evidence, reaching conclusions, and constructing scholarly arguments.
Course requirements include access
to UCF WebCourses, weekly reading and discussion postings, individual and
collaborative research assignments, an annotated bibliography, and a final
