Fall 2021 Special Topic & Course Details: Women, Wyrd, and Warriors in Old English Literature

From the time that the Roman Imperial legions left British shores until the Norman army of William the Conqueror took the field at Hastings, the lands that we now call the United Kingdom were filled with vibrant, interconnected communities whose history has been too little studied. This course offers a detailed overview of the literature of these diverse peoples— Angles, Saxons, Danes, Picts, Vikings, Britons, Celts, Africans, and Arabs— who called the British Isles home, contextualized within the history of the period. In particular, we will use changing ideas about gender as the lens through which we analyze this period that once was erroneously called the “Dark Ages;” we will examine how ordinary men and women reinvented themselves and the world they knew in the face of ever growing threats of violence and invasion.  Cross-listed with Women’s and Gender Studies

This course satisfies a Pre-1800 literature requirement for English Department majors.

Fall 2021 Course Details:Modern and Contemporary Drama

This course offers you an overview of the best writing for the modern and contemporary stage. After surveying some of the key figures who revolutionized theater in the early twentieth century, we'll sample such contemporary genres as absurdist drama, psychological gothic, “in yer face” theater, work by African-American, Latinx, queer and immigrant writers, documentary theater, and plays that incorporate new media. We'll be asking how theater addressed changes in its status and social function in the eras of film, television and the internet, how plays engage with identity politics both on and off the stage, and how and why contemporary theater has taken up controversial dramatic techniques like sex, shock, violence and audience participation. Interspersed in our conversations will also be snippets from key theorists of modern theater, so we can address the philosophies behind the plays. Where they are available, we'll also look at video and filmed performances to see how practitioners have realized and adapted these works.

Fall 2021 Special Topic: Twenty-First American StoriesTwenty-First Century American Stories

The aughts in America suffered the tragedy of 9/11; twenty years later, we witnessed riots at the Capitol amid a world pandemic. In two decades, we have moved in and around violence: that against Americans by non-Americans, that by Americans against their own government. Does violence define us in the early 21st century? Who is this “us” of 21st-century American literature? What haunts our past/s? What do we see for our future/s? This course examines traits and themes in twenty-first century American literature (including poetry, short stories, essays, graphic narrative, and film), probing its aspirations and despairs through literature’s attention to identity, technology, and globalization. Required: short papers; formal essays (including one research essay); lively class participation; presentations/leading discussions. Possible texts: Ng’s Everything I Never Told You; Roley’s American Son; (Natalie) Diaz’s Postcolonial Love; (Junot) Diaz’s The Brief Wondrous Live of Oscar Wao; Bennett’s The Vanishing Half; Jensen’s Carry; Torrey Peter’s Detransition, Baby; Belcourt’s A History of My Brief Body; Mazzuchelli’s Asterios Polyp; Suzan-Lori Park’s play and film The United States vs. Billie Holiday; Mandel’s Station Eleven; Villeneuve and Heisserer’s film The Arrival.
