English 789/889: Special Topics in English Teaching: Digital Literacies in English and Language Arts

Course Description and Goals —

In recent years, definitions of literacy, language, and literature have grown increasingly complex and contested as a result of new genres and communication mechanisms. Understandings of how we learn and teach English have been formalized and institutionalized over time, but our digital age questions, synthesizes, and reframes such knowledge. For example, content knowledge and text memorization have been central to schooling for over 100 years, but critical reading, information curation, and synthesis have become increasingly important skills in our newly information-rich society. What do these developments mean for the study and teaching of English? In this course, we will examine and theorize “21st century skills,” experiment with different forms of digital communication, and outline implications for learning and teaching English. We will explore such questions as:

  • What does it mean to become literate in the 21st century? Digitally literate? How do researchers and teachers think about technology-mediated literacies and cultures?
  • How are the processes and products of digital media and digital cultures changing what it means to read, write, create, and communicate?
  • What, if anything, is different about learning and participation in digital media and cultures? 
  • How can we integrate “new literacies” concepts & tools into our English and Language Arts teaching? Should we do so?

Spring 2022 Special Topic: Trauma, Disability and The Great War

World War One (1914-18) is considered the first truly modern, industrialized war in history; it was also one of the most costly and brutal, leaving millions dead and maimed in its wake.  The war’s recent centennial was the occasion for a tremendous upsurge of critical and creative interest across numerous disciplines, including history, sociology, women studies, and literature.  In this course we will discuss a variety of works by those directly or indirectly involved in the conflict as they intersect with ongoing critical discourses in disability, trauma, and gender studies.  War has traditionally been a proving ground for young men, yet modern warfare is as likely to unsettle as it is to affirm one’s sense of manhood.  In light of this, we will pay particular attention to the construction of maleness and the changing roles of women as they are represented in the writings of the war’s participants, witnesses, and critics.  Probable novels include Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West’s Return of the Soldier, A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence, along with nonfiction by less well-known figures.  These will be supplemented by recent fiction by Pat Barker and Emma Donoghue, and pertinent readings in contemporary criticism and theory.  Students are also welcome to pursue their own interests, whether it be in graphic narrative, film or some other medium or genre.
