19290 LIT3202 Death and Dying Face to Face Instruction (P) M 06:00 PM - 08:50 PM Not Online

Description

This course will approach death through a variety of literary genres—fiction, drama, memoir, and non-fiction. The readings were chosen to provide as broad a sampling as a finite semester can bear: murder, suicide, AIDS, stroke, profound illness will be our subjects along with the responses that death provokes—grief, denial, mystification, regret, and compassion. Throughout the term, Dr. Nuland’s How We Die will provide a medical point of reference for such deaths; and Mary Roach’s outrageous Stiff will help us dispose of the bodies.

The class relies on discussion to analyze the readings along with a variety of writing and research assignments. Occasional quizzes and short presentations are possible. There will also be a final exam.

(3 credits; PR 1102)
