Fall 2022 Detailed Description

What do great editors do? Assigning stories, editing sentences, posting stories online, managing the flow of breaking news Tweets, uploading video – these days editors do all this and more. No matter what the task, they work to ensure that the news is reported accurately, clearly and completely. They also help reporters do their best work.

This course aims to get you to think like such an editor. In particular, you’ll work to develop the two types of vision good editors share: the ability to see what’s there in a story and the ability to envision what’s not there but could be. Great editors make good writing better. These editors also make sure newspapers and news sites give readers the information they need and want, and stories and graphics that help readers make sense of the world around them.

ENGL 711 may be taken as an upper-level journalism elective by English/Journalism majors.

Fall 2022 Detailed Description

What is truth? Does it matter? If all views are relative, are fake news just one among many views? What does gender have to do with all that? And race and sexual orientation? What about the environment? Why do we often leave class – as in working class -- out of our consideration of identity? And why is identity an analytic category at all?

And, further, why do we discuss the above questions in a class on literature?

These and related questions will be analyzed in detail in the context of XIX century Imperialism. Our entry text, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, will serve as a test case introducing very specific time and place, as West encounters Africa. We will see how imperialism and patriarchy relate to one another (to inform a discourse about race and gender) and will learn to use terms such as the unconscious, ideology, cultural construction, deconstruction, cultural relativism, and so on, which we will bring to bear on differences that define personal and collective identities in our world today. And yes, Critical Race Theory (CRT) will be our topic, too.

We will also devote a lot of our time to learning how to analyze arguments effectively, how to ask practical and theoretical questions, how to organize your argument and support your claims, how to use concepts – all this in order to be able to think critically.

ENGL 714 satisfies the Theory Requirement for English: Literature majors.

In Fall 2022 ENGL 714 may be taken to satisfy the Race Requirement by English department majors. 

ENGL 714 may be taken as an upper-level elective by general English majors and all other majors housed in the English Department.

In Fall 2022 ENGL 714 may be taken for Capstone credit by English department majors if it is not used to satisfy any other requirement areas. Pick up a Capstone Declaration form in the main English office (HS 230F) if interested.

Fall 2022 Course Details

Have you ever wondered if ‘to podium’ is really a word? Whether it’s OK to say ‘bananadom’ or ‘blockbusterology’? These are things that linguistic morphologists might think about. This class will be a comprehensive introduction to the field of linguistic morphology. Topics covered will include the relationship between dictionaries and the mental lexicon, ways of forming new words (affixation, compounding, conversion, blending, reduplication, etc.), the difference between inflection and derivation, methods of analyzing word formation (including corpus based studies), the relationship of morphology to syntax and phonology, and the kinds of morphology that are found in the languages of the world. We will explore word formation both in English and in other languages, and our approach will be both practical and theoretical. Course requirements will include weekly problem sets, take home midterm and final exams, and two short research projects. Barring duplication of subject, may be repeated for credit. 

In Fall 2022 ENGL 718 may be taken for Capstone credit by English department majors if it is not used to satisfy any other requirement areas. Pick up a Capstone Declaration form in the main English office (HS 230F) if interested.

Fall 2022 Detailed Description: Seminar in English Teaching: Teaching Writing

The two-semester Seminar in English Teaching is a secondary school methods course that is designed to prepare you for future teaching. The fall course (Engl 725) focuses on teaching writing, and the spring course (Engl 726) focuses on teaching reading and literature, although it is difficult and even undesirable to attempt to fully separate these elements of literacy.

Working collaboratively, we will examine and compare philosophies of English teaching and learning, and we will work together to develop your own approaches to writing and literacy teaching. We will discuss theoretical, pedagogical, and practical ideas about teaching and learning writing; engage in reading and writing exercises; design and practice instructional lessons, activities, and assessments; and evaluate teaching approaches in peer groups and conferences. The goal of Engl 725 and Engl 726 (which are equivalent to Engl 710 and 792) is for you to learn how to recognize and affirm writing and literacy skills, and to consider how they can help your own future students learn to write, comprehend, analyze, describe, and evaluate various texts.

During each term, you may also take the 2-credit lab (Engl 725L in Fall semesters & 726L in Spring semesters) and devote thirty hours to a practicum project in which you will teach in a local school or build research about the writing and literacy practices of young adults.
