  • Topic: The Epic Western

  •  6112ENGL 2880  SEM 101

  • Sweeping vistas. Dark canyons. A cowboy hero, and -- the Vietnam War? Epic Westerns shape the legendary landscape of the American West and dramatize individual and collective efforts to establish national values. At the same time, they track the way those values change over time, reflecting contemporary cultural or political events, e.g. the antiwar movement, feminism, the nation's bicentennial. Looking at recent political struggles, we'll discover what history Western narratives engage, and what they obscure. In films such as The Searchers, The Wild Bunch, and the recent The Hateful Eight, as well as novels including Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, we will examine the intersections of history, gender, class, race, and power in the mythic American West.

  • Topic: Legal Science Fictions

  •  6113ENGL 2880  SEM 102

  • Science fiction writers imagine whole new social, economic or political systems in order to diagnose or cure the world's ills, and questions of law inevitably emerge. Should this robot be considered a legal person? Does this cool new policing tactic infringe our civil rights? In this course, we'll consider how such legal topics as personhood, equality, and criminality arise in utopian fiction and science fiction, and in actual case law, and how issues of gender, race, labor, and policing and punishment are complicated by technology and law. Assignments will include writing your own Utopia, and a collaborative research project on a currently contested legal-technological issue. Authors will include Octavia Butler, Samuel Delany, Plato, Joanna Russ, Ursula Le Guin, and China Miéville.

  • Topic: Creative Nonfiction: Do Our Stories Matter?

  •  6114ENGL 2880  SEM 103

  • Can a story take down a system? Under what conditions? This course will examine the role of the personal narrative as a political weapon. We will analyze the impact of art on the sociopolitical landscape through the works of James Baldwin, Adrienne Rich, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Rebecca Solnit, and many others. We will then interrogate our own biases, assumptions, desires, relationships, and fears in order to write the self into a global context. The essays we craft will confront the intersections of political and personal trauma, history and family, identity and theory. Ultimately, we will ponder: Do our stories matter? Why or why not?

  • Topic: Recognizing Genocide

  •  7967ENGL 2880  SEM 104

  • Genocides remain etched in our memories. But what, exactly, is a genocide? In this course, you'll write in several roles to shape public opinion. As a legal expert, you'll review the Genocide Convention’s applicability to the Rwandan genocide. As an academic, you'll test the concept of genocide against the Cambodian experience. Reporting as a journalist, you'll profile the killings in former Yugoslavia. As a politician, you will debate whether to recognize the deaths in Darfur as a genocide or not. To support these several forms of writing, you'll read Henri Locard’s Pol Pot’s Little Red Book, watch Hotel Rwanda and Enemies of the People, explore the genocide archive at Cornell, and hear cases from the Arusha Accords and The Hague.

  • Topic: Global Romance: Love and the Political

  •  8855ENGL 2880  SEM 105

  • Does love create worlds or put them in question? Does it secure a community, or mark its dissolution? Does it socialize or unsettle the individual? What is love when it meets the law? This course examines the dialogue between romantic and political narratives, tracing the ways they interrupt, galvanize, or complement each other. We will bring together fictions of love’s sway over the self (such as The Tempest, Frankenstein, and Beloved) with theories of love’s place in the political (such as Elizabeth’s Povinelli’s The Empire of Love and Michael Hardt’s and Antonio Negri’s Declaration). Through reviews and critical essays, we'll examine what happens when romance is placed at the heart of tales of empire, migration, reunion, and revolt.

  • Topic: Creative Nonfiction: The Invented I

  •  9633ENGL 2880  SEM 106

  • In this course, we’ll explore the personal essay, focusing on how the form can be a tool for self-discovery, self-reflection, and self-invention. As thinkers, we’ll focus on the practice of critical reflection, learn how to interrogate our experiences, make peace with the imperfections of our memory, and become more conscious of the particular ways in which we see the world. As writers, we’ll study narrative craft, including scene, dialogue, metaphor and character development. Our reading will feature Jamaica Kincaid, Zadie Smith, Eula Biss, James Baldwin and David Foster Wallace, among many others. A few documentaries and audio stories will round things out. Through our workshops, we’ll learn how to be generous, empathetic, and constructive readers of our peers’ work.

  • Topic: Shakespeare and Marlowe

  •  6771ENGL 4910  SEM 101

  • This honors seminar brings together two of the most striking and influential writers of the early modern period. Pairing and comparing their work introduces questions not only about their sensational lives and texts but also about power (including the power of classical authority), gender/sexuality, literary influence and the work of cultural adaptation. The only prerequisite for the course is an adventurous mind; no previous exposure to the authors is assumed. For students who are familiar with Shakespeare, the goal of this course is to establish a larger cultural and literary context for close and critical study of both writers. We will include some film, as another kind of adaptation, and there will be some reading in (translated) primary sources: Ovid, Virgil, Plutarch.

  • Topic: Reading Joyce's Ulysses

  •  7808ENGL 4910  SEM 102

  • Joyce’s masterwork Ulysses, the most influential book of the twentieth century, will be the focus of a fascinating, challenging, and pleasurable odyssey of reading to discover its art and meaning. We shall place Ulysses in the context of Irish culture and literary modernism. We shall discuss critical and theoretical approaches with the goal of preparing you to write your senior Honors thesis. We shall explore the relationship between Ulysses and other experiments in literary modernism—but also in painting and sculpture—and show how Ulysses redefines the concepts of epic, hero, and reader. We shall examine Ulysses as a political novel—specifically, Joyce’s response to Yeats and the Celtic Renaissance; Joyce’s role in the debate about the direction of Irish politics after Parnell; and Joyce’s response to British colonial occupation of Ireland. We shall also consider Ulysses as an urban novel in which Bloom, the marginalized Jew and outsider, is symptomatic of the kind of alienation created by urban culture. No previous experience with Joyce is required.
