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

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.

English 787/800, English Major Seminar: GENDER AND GENRE: AWAKENINGS.

This course focuses on women writers whose narratives strive to “wake up” the world to progressive change, and whose protagonists (if not already “awake”) gain a keener understanding of their lives and their societies. Texts will come from the 19th and early 20th centuries.  We’ll start with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (a critique of patriarchal culture and glory-struck “discoverers”), and move to Mary Seacole’s Wonderful Adventures (the autobiography of a pioneering healer and businesswoman), Amy Levy’s Reuben Sachs (a novel centered on Jewish communities in London), Katherine Mansfield and Kate Chopin’s stories (incisive portraits of women’s desires in New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S. South), Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse (an exploration of perception, art, and family), Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s Herland (a feminist utopia—perhaps?), and Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God (an indispensable tale of one woman’s quest-journey), in addition to other works by Harlem Renaissance writers (for instance Jessie Redmon Fauset’s “The Sleeper Wakes”). 

English 787/800, English Major Seminar: GENDER AND GENRE: AWAKENINGS is a Writing Intensive course that fulfills part of the Capstone requirement for the Literary Studies option and the Digital Language Arts option within the Literary Arts & Studies / English Studies major. At UNH Manchester, it also fulfills the diversity requirement for the B.A. in English Teaching.  Prerequisite: English 419, or instructor’s permission.  Although the course is titled “English Major Seminar,” students from other majors are very welcome and may find the subject matter of interest.

English 787/800 may be repeated for credit, up to a maximum of 8 credits, provided that content is not significantly duplicated.  4 credits.

English 789/889:  Teaching Young Adult Literature

Adolescence, for many students, seems to be a period during which love of reading dies. In fact, studies reveal that “less than one-third of 13-year-olds read daily” and “only 16 percent of high school students” identify as “high frequent readers” (Gilmore 47; Newkirk 117).  But there is hope in the field of popular young adult (YA) literature!  In YA lit, adolescents can find books that match their interests and reading levels.  In this course, we’ll explore how YA literature can be used to foster lifelong readers.  We will read widely among genres of young adult literature (including both contemporary YA works as well as canonical literary works written for an adult audience but deemed appropriate for secondary students), focusing on the particular skills of literary criticism and theory required to establish a developmentally appropriate literature curriculum at the secondary level and to link young adult literature to canonical literary traditions.  Students should prepare themselves for quick-paced reading, discussion, research, and assignments in varied formats, from written responses to booktalks.

THIS CLASS WILL BE TAUGHT ONLINE (there will be no change in modality).  Students on the Durham as well as the Manchester campus are welcome to enroll. 

DESCRIPTION:

This class is intended to help those who have an interest in studying English Grammar, such as pre-service teachers, and who want to build (or build on) a strong foundation in the history of the English Language and in modes of language usage and style.

 

We can't understand grammar without familiarizing ourselves with the origins of the English Language. To this end, the first half of the semester will focus on discovering how English developed--and is developing. We'll also find out about Englishes: British English, American English, African-American English, Australian English, to name just a few. We'll also be probing some of the social issues surrounding the notion of Standard English and non-standard dialects and variants. Our research paper will focus on one of these elements of English.

 

Furthermore, the only way we can become better users of English is by engaging in rigorous revision and analysis of our own writing. Thus, in the second half of the semester, we'll be revising our research paper. We'll focus first on usage issues (commas, sentence boundaries, paragraphs etc.) using The Scott, Foresman Handbook for Writers; we'll then move on to matters of style (language choice, varieties of sentence structures, coherence). Throughout this process, we'll be using our own research papers as models in the revision and grammar-learning process.
