Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Special Topics Classes:

ENG 295: Textual Sexualities: LGBTQI+ Literature

This course will explore literary presentations of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transsexual, Queer and Intersex life.  Genres will include graphic novels, plays, poems, novels and memoir. Themes include: queer childhood, hiding, coming out, freedom, communities, relationships, sex, homophobia, racism, sexism, creativity and renewal. Writing is an integral component of the course.

 

ENG 296: Greek Mythology in English Literature

This course will show how writers have used Greek myth for their own purposes: by rewriting stories complete, incorporating plot elements, borrowing themes, or by using patterns and structures as scaffolding for their own works.  One set of stories relates, again and again, to the experience of humans living in remote times and places.  As the semester unwinds, we will pair specific myths (from Ovid’s Metamorphoses) with their updatings or co-optings by subsequent authors.
