ENGL 1168

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

From TV news to rock lyrics, from ads to political speeches to productions of Shakespeare, the forms of culture surround us at every moment. In addition to entertaining us or enticing us, they carry implied messages about who we are, what world we live in, and what we should value. Topics and reading lists vary from section to section, but all are built on the assumption that learning to decode these messages is a survival skill in today's media-saturated world and also excellent training for reading literature. Consult the John. S. Knight Writing Seminar Program brochure for current year offerings, instructors and section descriptions: http://www.arts.cornell.edu/knight_institute/fws/fws.htm.
