Additional Course Details: 

Women who behave badly in early drama take murderous revenge on their betrayers; manipulate their husbands; defy the wishes of their families; and deceive their communities. They also strive to choose their own paths in life, by whatever means they can, sometimes cutting truly frightening figures, sometimes showing admirable strength and fortitude.

Reading and viewing a variety of tragedies and comedies, including Euripides's Medea, Shakespeare's Macbeth, Aristophanes's Lysistrata and Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, we will scrutinize these women's actions and place them in their historical and social contexts. By examining women's roles in Ancient Greece, Roman Italy, and Renaissance and Restoration England, we will gain a sense of how these female characters' behaviors on the stage aligned with expectations in society at the time. What did it mean to society and to audiences of drama for a woman to choose her own marriage partner, or for her to reject the duties of a wife and daughter? And how do these women's dramatic actions help us understand our own actions more fully?

Writing for Nonprofits and Communities

Nonprofit organizations work on behalf of their causes and communities, and every year, nonprofits, as a whole, generate millions of dollars to fund this work. These kinds of organizations rely on a mix of financial resources to fund their work including donors, fundraising events, appeals to legislators, and grants. Given this reality, effective writing strategies are essential for these organizations, and they are often in need of effective writers to promote their work, write for grants, solicit donations, and educate legislators and the public alike. For students aiming to work in university and college settings, a working knowledge and understanding of writing for nonprofits/grants can be an important skill set to bring to their future workplaces.

Through readings, writing and analytic activities (including the examination of grant applications and sample writing materials from nonprofits), interactions with local nonprofit groups, projects, and guest speakers, students in this course will:

  • Gain an understanding of the goals and missions of non-profit and other community organizations. We will also consider the grant-writing activities undertaken by these groups.
  • Gain an understanding of the texts such organizations use in order to achieve their goals and mission, including an understanding of genres, conventions, rhetorical strategies, and writing processes.
  • Acquire and practice using rhetorical strategies that appropriately address the exigencies, audiences, and purposes non-profit professionals face.
  • Gain specific writing and communication skills that can aid you in nonprofit/grant activities for workplaces, grant activities, or volunteer work.
  • Make connections with professionals in the non-profit community.

ENGL 829 is open for all MA and Ph.D. students.
