Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course explores movement through and across water in both actual and metaphorical terms. Readings include such classics as Beloved, Moby-Dick, and Huckleberry Finn. They also include lesser read accounts such as The Morgesons and Ten Nights in a Bar Room. As a class, we will ask questions about the different boundaries that water produces for considering geographies of race and gender. The course benefits from the Herbert F. Johnson Art Museum, using funds from the Andrew Mellon Foundation to sponsor materials from the museum, guest lectures, and possible field trips. We will occasionally meet in the museum and classes may involve Nancy Green, Gale and Ira Drukier Curator at the Museum.
