92923 AML3613 Narratives of Slavery World Wide Web (W) Not Online

This Web literature course will examine the stories of American literature that focus specifically upon the institution of chattel slavery from the 18th & 19th centuries. We will read narratives that were written by the ex-slaves and the modern literary theories that have helped us understand them. In this way the course will be an historical, theoretical examination of themes, topics, ideas, and perspectives--all of which will be firmly grounded in theories about story-telling, or narrative.

The class will be led primarily by independent reading, Power Point teacher lectures, and short writing assignments. The writing assignments will be an opportunity to reflect on the Power Point lectures, readings--including the critical essays--and to ask questions. Regularly scheduled quizzes and exams are designed to enable students to stay up with the readings.

92845 ENG3014 Theories and Tech of Lit Study Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) Tu 09:00 AM - 10:15 AM Not Online

This web-mediated course will address the questions surrounding the ways we read, and the possible interpretations of texts. Through shared readings, discussion and Power Point lectures, we will be prepared to write about literature in many ways. The course will proceed from an historical survey of major critical approaches to reading and interpretation.

Because this is a theory course, the heavy reading requirement is the highest priority, and probably the most difficult aspect of the course. After we read and discuss a survey of literary theories and approaches to reading, we will use the novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as our practice text, to which we will apply the techniques and approaches we've read. It is important that you keep up with the readings in order to participate in class discussions, and so that you may do well on the writings, quizzes, exams and the Final Project which will be an oral presentation at the end of the term.
