Students engage these (inter)disciplinary conversations by developing scholarly and/or community-based projects that combine critical thinking,research, and reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.

ENGL 5220. Rhetorical Theories and Practices. 3 cr. hrs.

What is rhetoric, and how does a knowledge of rhetorical theories enhance critical thinking, reading, writing, speaking, and listening? In this theory and writing course, students explore these questions and others by exploring rhetorical theories spanning from Greco-Roman ideas about the logic and ethics of argument to contemporary concepts of identification, performativity, and raced voices and consciousness.

ENGL 5250. Creative Writing: Fiction. 3 cr. hrs.

“Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” So says that great theorist of narrative craft, the filmmaker Mel Brooks. Of course, most of life (and most of the fiction that tries to reflect the complexity of life) falls all along the spectrum between (and including) those two poles. This course gives students an opportunity both to exercise their narrative imagination and to harness it productively to explore that spectrum. Students learn the craft and techniques of writing fiction and develop their understanding of the creative process by analyzing published fiction from the practitioner’s perspective, by writing and revising fiction, and by discussing their work and the work of their peers in workshop.

ENGL 5260. Creative Writing: Poetry. 3 cr. hrs.

Poetry is all about surprise. As Robert Frost put it, "I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering." The practice of poetry will benefit anyone who wants to write--and think--in innovative ways about themselves and their world(s). Students explore the work of living poets while developing a portfolio of their own drafts and revisions. The workshop format is open and accessible to all--from beginners to advanced practitioners--and allows every student to find a voice in the context of a supportive, rigorous, and exploratory atmosphere.

ENGL 5301. Medieval Literature and Chaucer. 3 cr. hrs.

"The Canterbury Tales" sets itself in the late decades of 14th-c. England when political upheavals and revolts against feudal hierarchy were abroad in both country and court: agricultural workers rising up against tax burdens, friars being viewed as figures of excess, women increasing pressure to compete in the marketplace and to travel, prompting thereby hundreds of treatises censuring them as unruly and dangerous to society. Chaucer, however, seems to have thrived on such havoc. His are nervy questions in his "Tales" as he explores corruption within the Church, the dangerous and comical effects of courtly love, women challenging clerical interpretation of Scripture, men who try to hold their wives “narwe in cage,” what constitues happiness, the impulses behind our choices, and the clergy’s abuse of knowledge. The explorations are both comic and dead-serious. Text include "Troilus and Criseyde," and "The Canterbury Tales.".

ENGL 5310. Studies in Global Literature. 3 cr. hrs.

An in-depth exploration of selected works in English or in translation from non-Anglo-American cultural traditions. Texts can be drawn from African, Asian, European, Latin American and Middle Eastern literatures with an emphasis on historical, intellectual and/or cultural contexts. Consult the dept. Web site or its course descriptions booklet for specific topic.

ENGL 5311. Themes in Medieval Literature. 3 cr. hrs.

Students explore the poetic techniques of Old English poetry through later Medieval literature. Some of the most fundamental issues faced by the Anglo-Saxon poets include: the hero in a darkening world, the dangers of royal pride, the transitory joys of life, feuds and unavenged losses, the concept of kingship, the exile. The later Medieval literature, in turn, has its own fears, hilarities and preoccupations, including the nature of obsessive love, comedic love, and courtly love, the crisis of the transfer of power, the instability of human nature, the ideal of knighthood, and the status of women, and gender roles themselves. Works included may be "Beowulf," “The Wife's Lament,”and “The Wanderer,” "Pearl Anonymous," "Tristan and Iseult," "Gawain and the Green Knight," Malory's "Morte Darthur.".

ENGL 5321. British Literature of the 16th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

In the decades after the Reformation, Britain was roiled by religious and political debates both intensely local and far transcending the country’s national boundaries, at the same time that its citizens were figuring out for the first time what it meant to be a nation with its own distinct language and culture. Sonnets, epics, political treatises, closet drama and the first plays for the public stage all competed in what became the country’s first public literary marketplace, as economic and political changes helped foster the first English literature and the first conception of the person that we can call truly modern. In this course we make ourselves present at the hotly contested beginnings of genres, categories, and ideas familiar enough to us now that we take them as natural, by reading poems and plays so enduring that 400 years later they are still part of our cultural fabric.

ENGL 5331. Shakespeare. 3 cr. hrs.

“To be or not to be,” “all the world’s a stage” – you’ve heard of some of the big moments, but are you aware of the extraordinary variety and breadth of the subjects that interested Shakespeare? Property law, Roman history, same-sex love, gender-bending, political representation, profound questions of existence and ethics – all these subjects and many more are taken up in Shakespeare’s vast body of work, which has served as a touchstone for literate culture since right after his death. We will read poems and of course plays, some famous and some not as much, that both locate Shakespeare in his own particular context and suggest why his work has been so enduring and useful all over the modern world.

ENGL 5341. British Literature of the 17th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

Colonialism and empire, economic slavery, regicide, revolution, one of the earliest experiments with republicanism in the modern world, the development of scientific empiricism and positivism, the invention of newspapers…all of these events and institutions in seventeenth-century Britain, so fundamental to our own culture, not only shaped but were shaped by its literature, which was one of the central public forums in which ideas were ventured and debated. In this course we will read poems, plays, prose and speeches by writers both famous and (now) obscure, from Francis Bacon and Mary Wroth to John Milton and Kenelm Digby, as a window into their thinking about such central problems as love, friendship, community, beauty, profit and self-interest, and political justice.

ENGL 5351. Milton. 3 cr. hrs.

In our world, in which we debate how and if we can protect our freedoms, in which our use of reason has brought us such unprecedented power to communicate but also to destroy, and in which religious discourse figures so prominently, for good and for ill, Milton has particular relevance. His apparent confidence (arrogance?) in advancing his ideas, in many works but in "Paradise Lost" especially, forces each one of us to reevaluate our own. In this course, students will explore Milton’s major poetry and prose in the context of 17th century England.

ENGL 5361. Literatures of Pre-Colonial and Colonial America. 3 cr. hrs.

What constitutes the earliest forms of American literature? How did writing in the Americas prior to the foundation of modern nation-states grow out of and respond to the unique circumstances of contact and collision between the “Old World” of Europe and the “New World” of America? How was colonial American literature situated in the larger geopolitical arenas of the Atlantic World, the “Black Atlantic,” and competing imperialist projects? In this course, students will encounter the diverse genres and multiple literary traditions that converged in North America from the initial arrival of Europeans up to the American Revolution. The course may take a comparative transatlantic, transnational, and / or hemispheric approach, with readings drawn from the literatures of British, French, and Spanish America as well as Native American cultures.

ENGL 5402. The Novel to 1900. 3 cr. hrs.

The modern British novel took shape in England in the late seventeenth century, and by 1900, it had become the most popular genre of its day. Through innovations in point of view, characterization, and narrative form, novelists offer unprecedented techniques for representing human emotion and experience. Traces the development of the novel from its origins to the end of the nineteenth century, considering how writers examine questions such as gender and marriage, race and empire, science and religion, and law and justice. Topics vary each term.

ENGL 5410. British Literature to 1500. 3 cr. hrs.

A reading of medieval works from the Old and Middle English periods, with emphasis on both literary and cultural issues. Typical readings include lyrics, romances, The Pearl, Sir Gawain, and Piers Plowman, and works by Gower, Kempe, and Malory.

ENGL 5412. Transatlantic Literature, 1700-1900. 3 cr. hrs.

Transatlantic studies reframe Anglophone literature (and sometimes literature in translation) to incorporate perspectives beyond the national. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were eras of economic and cultural exchange across the Atlantic ocean; this course will track some of these “currents.” Individual instructors may focus on comparative revolutions, on the Black Atlantic, on transnational romanticism, travel and exploration, slavery and abolition, or other topics.

ENGL 5420. Renaissance Literature: The 16th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of Tudor poetry, drama, and prose, with emphasis on literary and cultural issues of the Elizabethan period. Writers considered might include Lodge and More (prose); Shakespeare, Philip and Mary Sidney, Spenser, and Wyatt (lyric and narrative poetry); and Carey, Kyd, and Marlowe (drama).

ENGL 5422. British literature of the Long 18th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

During the "long eighteenth century" (1660-1830), England experienced unprecedented literary and cultural innovation: writers developed new forms of fiction, actresses appeared on stage for the first time, and poets used verse as vehicles for satirical and public expression. Meanwhile, political parties took shape, the government expanded the reach of its empire, the nuclear family assumed its modern form, and burgeoning print media provided a stream of gossip and news. In this course, students will explore the era’s literary developments in the context of such social, cultural, and political changes. Topics vary from semester to semester.

ENGL 5430. Renaissance Literature: The 17th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of English poetry, drama and prose from 1603 to the beginnings of the neoclassical period. Writers considered might include Donne, Herbert, Herrick, Jonson, and Marvell (lyric); Bacon and Wroth (prose); and Jonson, Middleton, and Webster (drama).

ENGL 5432. US Literatures of the Revolution and New Republic. 3 cr. hrs.

The eighteenth century saw profound changes in America; there were revolutions not only in politics but in the ways people lived their everyday lives, in travel, in industry, and in literature. While the American Revolution ended the colonial domination of European settlers and the founding of the United States, those citizens in turn were colonizing Native American lands and African labor. Women clamored to be included in the democratic conversation, and the ideology of “Republican Mortherhood” simultaneously stimulated and constrained those desires. In this course, students will look at the ways a diverse group of writers responded to these sea changes by employing a comparative transatlantic or transpacific approach or by focusing more closely on issues specific to the North American continent; issues studied may include the rise of the novel and the changes in print culture surrounding the Revolution, or may focus on the literature of women or narratives of captivity and slavery.

ENGL 5440. The Ages of Dryden and Pope: 1660-1744. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of the prose, poetry, and drama of the later 18th century, featuring such writers as Boswell, Burney, Fielding, Johnson, and Sterne within the historical, literary, and intellectual contexts of the era.

ENGL 5452. British Literature of the Romantic Period, 1790-1837. 3 cr. hrs.

From the French Revolution to the Industrial Revolution, 1780-1837. How exactly did civil and human rights evolve in Great Britain? Gender, class, religious turmoil, and race are also central issues in the study of works by romantic-era writers such as Jane Austen, Ann Radcliffe, William Wordsworth, William Blake, John Keats, Percy Shelley, George Gordon Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Mary Shelley. Students will study thematic approaches to or surveys of the literature of the period.

ENGL 5460. The Romantic Period: 1790-1837. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of the poetry, drama, and fiction of the period with emphasis on the works of: Austen, Blake, Byron, Coleridge, Keats, the Shelleys, Smith, and Wordsworth.

ENGL 5472. British Literature of the Victorian Period, 1837-1900. 3 cr. hrs.

Dracula, Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways,” the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jane Eyre—these are all Victorian classics. A course in Victorian literature will introduce you to many more exciting, wise and weird texts written in Britain during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901), dealing with such topics as social justice, gender and sexuality, religious faith, empire, crime, ecology, childhood, and the role of literature in an era of mass literacy. Whether it’s the Arthurian tales of Tennyson, the religious poetry of Christina Rossetti and the Jesuit Gerard Manley Hopkins, the eco-criticism of John Ruskin, Oscar Wilde’s hilarious plays, or the exploration of vocation in Middlemarch by George Eliot (Marian Evans), Victorian literature offers many great reads in addition to those that have become standards of contemporary popular culture.

ENGL 5482. US Literature from the Civil War to the Early 20th Century. 3 cr. hrs.

The period between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of the twentieth century was one of profound social, technological, and political changes in the United States. We look at how writers reflected and responded to the world of the late nineteenth century (sometimes reaching into the early twentieth century) in literature written by American authors and, sometimes, by the European writers that influenced them during this period of intense transnational literary exchange. Courses may address the waxing and waning popularity of sentimental literature, the elite enthusiasm for realist literature and the related growth of regional literature, the connection between fiction and the muckraking school of journalism, the expansion of publication in magazines and newspapers, the explosion of literatures by and about immigrants, and/or African American literary production in the eras of Reconstruction and Jim Crow. Students may read works by Frederick Douglass, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Henry James, Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, W. E. B. DuBois, Charles Chesnutt, Theodore Dreiser, Frank Norris, Sarah Orne Jewett, Sarah M. B. Piatt, Zitkala Sa, Charlotte Perkins GIlman, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, and a multitude of others.

ENGL 5503. British Literature since 1900. 3 cr. hrs.

Students explore English literature written since 1900, a period when writers have confronted the turbulence of modern history while defending the value of their art. The last century is marked by two world wars, the rise and fall of the British Empire, globalization, accelerating technological development, and changing gender roles and class structures. In this era, some artists have followed the modernist dictum to “make it new,” to overthrow, reimagine, and thus revitalize older forms of literary expression no longer attuned to the modern era, while others have sought to refine traditional structures for plays, poems, novels, and short stories. Against an historical backdrop that has witnessed the rise of radio, television, film, the Internet, and the 24-hour news cycle, writers have used their art to assert that (in the words of twentieth-century poet Ezra Pound) “literature is news that stays news.”.

ENGL 5510. Colonial and American Literature from the Beginnings to 1798. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of the forms of colonial and indigenous cultural expression, the literature of the Revolutionary War and the early republic, and the emergence of a national literature. Writers studied may include Bradstreet, Edwards, Equiano, Franklin, Irving, Mather, Rowson, Taylor, and Wheatley.

ENGL 5513. Irish literature. 3 cr. hrs.

Even a quick glance at the canon of modern English literature yields a strange insight—many of the most celebrated English writers of the past century years were actually Irish: Yeats, Joyce, Shaw, Synge, Beckett, Heaney, Boland, to name a few. How does reading these writers as either English or Irish shape the way we understand them? To answer this question, students will explore some of the most important literature to emerge in Ireland in the past century or so, an era when Irish writers have grappled with changing questions surrounding what it means to be Irish. In the process of reckoning with what Yeats called the “terrible beauty” of a violent Irish history, Irish writers seized a space on the world stage for their art.

ENGL 5520. American Literature from 1798 to 1865. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of the literature and culture of the early-to-mid 19th century, including the periods of the American Renaissance and the Civil War. Writers studied may include: Alcott, Child, Cooper, Dickinson, Douglass, Emerson, Fuller, Hawthorne, Melville, Poe, Stowe, Thoreau, and Whitman.

ENGL 5523. Modernism. 3 cr. hrs.

What should literature be and do in an era of war, revolution, and cataclysmic cultural change? Modernist literature emerged across Europe and North America in the early twentieth century in response to this question. Old ideas and forms suddenly seemed ill-equipped to respond to the twentieth century, which led modernist artists to rebel against convention. Writers such as Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, H.D., W.B. Yeats, and Gertrude Stein worked across languages, national traditions, and genres to reinvent the literary past and change contemporary history. In the process, they created some of the most astonishing, daring, and rewarding poems, novels, and plays of the twentieth century.

ENGL 5530. American Literature from 1865 to 1914. 3 cr. hrs.

A study of late 19th century literature and culture with emphasis on the rise of realism to the beginnings of modernism. Writers studied generally include: Chesnutt, Chopin, Crane, Dickinson, Dreiser, Harper, James, Twain, and Wharton.

The themes and formal and stylistic aspects of the different works under discussion will be situated within the context of the political, social, scientific, technological, and economic transformations in this period of American history. We will examine the interactions between the development of modern American literature and key issues of the period including racial segregation and racial uplift, class inequality, labor and immigration debates, the feminist movement, global war, the invention of the atom bomb, and the rise of mass entertainments and consumerism.

ENGL 5543. British Literature of the Postmodernist Period. 3 cr. hrs.

Students explore modern and contemporary English literature, which engages catastrophes and humiliations blared in countless headlines, from England’s near starvation by German U-boats in World War I to the loss of the Raj, the British expulsion from Suez and not long after what was once called Rhodesia, the Christine Keeler scandal, and the Falklands debacle. Whether the collapse of the British empire qualifies as disaster, opportunity, retribution, graveyard, or cradle will depend on who is talking. And exactly who is talking, often for the first time, is the point. As Kipling feared, Conrad hoped, and Orwell predicted, the weakening empire gave new freedom and power to the once silenced and voiceless, not only in the former colonies and throughout the Commonwealth but within England itself. Students study the accelerating evolution of new genres, the trade-offs of dialect literature, the appropriation and/or resistance of "popular" cultures, the danger of the high-tech police state, and the search for a way to awaken the sleepwalkers and inspire the denialists without trampling their freedom, even if that freedom is enthralled to commercially motivated and cynically destructive mythologies. Among the storytellers and poets threading this labyrinth can be counted Auden, Orwell, Thomas, Reed, Bennett, Harrison, Wa Thiong’O, Larkin, Walcott, Hughes, Achebe, Naipaul, Heaney, Gordimer, Rushdie, Boland, and Muldoon.

How have different authors responded to the rapid social changes and urgent political crises the world has undergone since the year 2000?

Ballard in 1971. “From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.” What has been the role of speculative and fantastic media in anticipating and articulating social change? How have creators in science fiction and fantasy used the relative safety of these genres’ unreal situations to comment on very real crises in politics, identity, economics, ecology, and war? How have science fiction and fantasy provided a space for reflection upon and resistance to dominant ideologies, and where have they served instead to reproduce and augment such powers?

Courses may range from surveys of different periods in the history of science fiction and fantasy to focused study of particular themes, subgenres, and authors.

ENGL 5736. Fiction. 3 cr. hrs.

"There is no doubt," says Doris Lessing, "that fiction makes a better job of the truth." What is the connection between fiction and truth? And why are stories (narrative fictions) so compelling?

How does the production and reception of different types of new media texts challenge our ideas about writing and reading? How do available technologies impact digital genres and forms?
