Antebellum writers tried to shape the nation through their texts, as they expressed the struggles over power and identity that led to the Civil War--and that continue to define U.S. discourses today. We encounter the genres--novels, oratory, poetry, appeals, slave narratives, essays, and nature writing--that authors used to grapple with slavery, social reform, environmental transformation, and aesthetics. Writers may include William Apess (Pequot), Margaret Fuller, Edgar Allan Poe, Frederick Douglass, and Emily Dickinson.

Special Topic Fall 2023: Shakespeare in the 21st Century

This course is designed to introduce you to issues and practices that have become central to Shakespeare criticism and performance in the past twenty-five years. We'll examine the ways in which cross-gender and cross-racial casting has reshaped Shakespeare performance, the rise of Shakespearean adaptation and same-language "translation," the globalization of Shakespeare, festival performance, screen Shakespeare (especially the small screen), efforts to bring decolonization and social justice to the fore in teaching and performance, and the vexed question of "canceling" Shakespeare, among other issues. In addition to delving deep into several Shakespeare plays, we will read a range of essays and view many different kinds of Shakespeare performances. This course will assume that you have some previous familiarity with Shakespeare; it is an ideal follow-up to ENGL 657, "Introduction to Shakespeare." Requirements will include short writing assignments, a class presentation, and a final research paper. 

This course satisfies a Pre-1800 Literature requirement for English Department majors. 

General English majors may take ENGL 758 for Capstone credit if it is not taken to satisfy other major requirement areas. Pick up a Capstone Declaration Form in the main English office (HS 230F) if interested.

Readings include a wide selection of Milton's poetry and prose with a special focus on "Paradise Lost". Milton?s writings contain arguments regarding free will, tyranny, and slavery that inform modern conceptions of civil liberty, republican government, and free speech. In the US Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and other early framers credit "Paradise Lost" as having shaped their ideas of religious and civil liberty in a democratic republic.

ENGL 787, English Major Seminar: Contact Zones

This course considers how individual and cultural identities are shaped in a world where people are on the move, literally and metaphorically, voluntarily and involuntarily. When borders are crossed and histories are remade, what is lost and what is gained? As Mohsin Hamid observes, “To a certain extent we are all refugees, at least in an emotional sense. Migration is the fundamental nature of what it is to be a human being. A human being is somebody with a particular genetic configuration: yes. But a human being is also someone who migrates through time.”

Through fiction, drama, poetry and film, we’ll explore the myriad ways in which we experience ourselves, and one another, as we develop new understandings of family, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, class, and nationality. Writers will include Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Jericho Brown, Kali Fajardo-Anstine, Mohsin Hamid, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Lynn Nottage, Tommy Orange, Diane Seuss, and Jesmyn Ward, among others.  Supplemental readings will provide frameworks for talking about a range of critical issues. 

English 787, English Major Seminar: Contact Zones 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 (please note the “instructor’s permission” option).

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

Independent Studies are a means for students to pursue in-depth study in an area not covered by the department’s regular course offerings. ENGL 795 may not count as a Capstone requirement.  Because English 795 is not intended to substitute for regular courses, students desiring to register for Independent Study must submit a written proposal providing the details of their projects. Independent Study proposals should demonstrate academic rigor and supply substantive supporting documentation outlining the proposed workload, provide a list of reading materials and primary and secondary souces to be consulted. A syllabus from an existing course is NOT an acceptable substitute for this description. The proposal must also be approved in advance by a Faculty Sponsor, who is required to submit a written rationale that specifies how the Independent Study project will add value to the student’s major experience. All Indpenedent Study proposals are reviewed by the English Department Chair and faculty appropriate to the proposed project.

How to register for an Independent Study:

To register for an Independent Study, you must submit a written proposal in the semester prior to when the independent study will be undertaken.  The purpose of the proposal is to provide specific and detailed information about how you will earn academic credits. Visit the main English Department office (Ham Smith 230F) to pick up an Independent Study proposal form.
