    Queer and Now: LGTBQ Literature and Film

This course considers the diverse forms of LGBTQ sexuality, self-expression, and desire as bodied forth in 20th and 21st century fiction, poetry, drama, graphic memoir, and cinema.  We'll track the changing ways in which fluid sexualities have been experienced and represented, aided by critical essays offering theoretical frameworks and historical context (one of which, Eve Kosovsky Sedgwick's 1993 "Queer and Now," gives this class its title).

We’ll read such writers as James Baldwin (Giovanni's Room), Frank O'Hara, Audre Lorde, June Jordan, Mark Doty, Leslie Feinberg (Stone Butch Blues), Tony Kushner (Angels in America), Alison Bechdel (Fun Home), Ivan Coyote, Chinelo Okparanta (Under the Udala Trees), Carmen Maria Machado (In the Dream House), Bryan Washington, and Tade Thompson (Rosewater, an Africanfuturist novel).

In addition to the documentaries The Celluloid Closet and Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen, we’ll explore work by such directors as Jennie Livingston (Paris Is Burning), the Wachowskis (Bound), Sean Baker (Tangerine), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Sebastian Lelio (A Fantastic Woman), and Wanuri Kahiu (Rafiki).

English 787/800, English Major Seminar: Queer and Now is a Writing Intensive course that fulfills part of the Capstone requirement (as well as the “Poetics” requirement) for the Literary Studies 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.

Fall 2022 Course Details

How do you turn an idea, or an essay, or a collection of essays into a book?  In this workshop we will demystify the art of writing a book-length manuscript and begin a narrative nonfiction project’s journey from short-form to long-form. How do you develop multiple themes? Multiple characters? How do you structure a complicated narrative? How do you organize a collection of essays? We will study the art of crafting a book proposal, the essential first step towards publishing a lengthy nonfiction narrative. Because often books evolve from an essay or an article, we will explore pitching to and publishing in magazines and journals as well as Random House. A series of guest speakers, ranging from authors to agents to editors, will provide advice and insights. Readings include successful book proposals as well as narrative nonfiction books that can serve as models. Students must arrive at the first class with a topic developed enough to begin this adventure. This course is especially helpful to students immersed in writing, or are preparing to write, their thesis manuscripts. All forms of creative nonfiction are embraced.

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.
