Fall 2022 Course Details: Environmental Theory

How can we talk about environmental crisis? What words can we use to represent the natural world—and human interactions with it? Is it possible to describe nature without cultural projections? How can language change vision, policy, action? In this course, we will grapple with the urgent need to articulate environmental issues by reading contemporary critics who are inventing vocabularies to do so, such as Rob Nixon on “slow violence” and Stacy Alaimo on “trans-corporeality.” We’ll read 19th-21st century writers who write about different environments from different perspectives, shaped in part by race, gender, indigeneity, and class: Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, Mary Austin, Rachel Carson, Barry Lopez, Evelyn White, Joy Harjo, and Octavia Butler. We’ll read ecocriticism by Carolyn Merchant, Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Bruno Latour, and Kimberly Ruffin. We’ll explore ecofeminism, environmental justice, postcolonial ecology, and the concept of the Anthropocene. Students taking 736 for Women’s Studies credit will write papers that focus on women writers or on gender and the environment. Writing intensive. Satisfies a post-1800 literature requirement for English majors. In fall 2022, this class fulfills a DH requirement for the TBD major. Students taking 897M will write a graduate-level research paper; students taking 897M for credit towards a Graduate Certificate in Feminist Studies will also write such a paper and will focus their written work on women writers, ecofeminist theory, or gender and the environment.

Fall 2022 Special Topic: Revenge Tragedy, Then & Now

This seminar will take an in-depth look at the long history of revenge tragedy, one of Western culture's most venerable genres. The very origins of tragedy can be traced to tales of revenge, and those stories raise enduring questions about our tribal loyalties and hatreds, justice and the law, the proper and improper uses of violence, guilt, repentance and forgiveness, and the role of divine and impersonal forces in human affairs. After discussion of classical tragedies by Aeschylus and Seneca, we will then move to the age of Shakespeare and sample some of the great early English achievements in the genre, among them Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, Shakespeare's Hamlet and Othello, and Thomas Middleton's The Revenger's Tragedy. From there we'll turn our attention to modern outgrowths of this genre, looking at examples of revenge in modern plays, contemporary young adult novels, and action and horror films. Along the way we'll have occasion to consider why revenge has remained such a popular topic over time, how the morality of revenge has changed, why audiences identify with revengers, and how revenge is linked to questions of social justice. This course will culminate with a long research paper of your own design, which this seminar will teach you how to complete step-by-step.

Fall 2022 Special TopicThe Novella

Short novel?  Longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel? Ian McEwan described the form as “…long enough for the reader to inhabit a world or a consciousness and be kept there, short enough to be read in a sitting or two and for the whole structure to be held in mind at first encounter--the architecture of the novella is one of its immediate pleasures.” In lively discussions we'll approach the novella as writers examining the technical aspects of fiction: point of view, dramatic action, plot and subplot, dialogue, character, language, description and theme. We'll ask questions of the form: What are the demands for economy, clarity and focus? How is forward momentum achieved and tension maintained? Is the design and purpose of the novella different from a longer work? As we question each author’s intent and choices, we'll also reflect on the choices we make in our own work, as well as try our hand at creative writing, completely unique, but inspired by these novellas. Texts will include Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan, On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan; Train Dreams by Denis Johnson; The Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa; So Long, See You Tomorrow by William Maxwell; The Dead by James Joyce; Ordinary Love and Good Will by Jane Smiley and others.
