Fall 2024 Detailed Description:

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 ecocritics who are inventing vocabularies to do so, such as Rob Nixon on “slow violence” and Stacy Alaimo on “trans-corporeality.” We’ll also read 19th-21st century nature writers, poets, and fiction writers who write about different environments from different perspectives, shaped in part by race, gender, and indigeneity, from Henry David Thoreau and Mary Austin to Rachel Carson, Barry Lopez, Joy Harjo, and Octavia Butler. We’ll explore ecofeminism, environmental justice, postcolonial ecology, and the concept of the Anthropocene.

Writing intensive. Satisfies a post-1800 literature requirement for English majors. In fall 2024, this class fulfills a DH (Digital Humanities) requirement for the TBD major. ENGL 736 is an approved elective for the Sustainability Dual Major. Undergraduate students taking this class for Women’s and Gender Studies credit will write papers that focus on women writers or on gender and the environment. Graduate students taking 897N will write a graduate-level research paper; those taking 897N 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. Finally, ENGL 736 is a good choice for honors work. If you are an Honors-in-Major English student and would like to take this as an honors course, please talk to me during the first week of class.

Fall 2024 Special Topic: "Climbing the Empathy Wall": Race in Contemporary American Literature 

“An empathy wall is an obstacle to deep understanding of another person,” writes Arlie Russell Hochschild in her study Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right, “one that can make us feel indifferent or even hostile to those who hold different beliefs or whose childhood is rooted in different circumstances.” This course asks, “How can we climb that empathy wall?” Through very contemporary literature—published from 2015 onward, including novels, short stories, poetry, essays, graphic narratives, media images and other pop culture—we will discuss what health, wealth, environment, education, and justice mean for BIPOC (biracial, indigenous, people of color) and for poor whites. Possible texts; Orange’s Vanishing Stars; Munoz’s The Consequences; Ward’s Let Us Descend; selections from Castillo’s How to Read Now: Essays; Potts’ The Forgotten Girls: A Memoir of Friendship and Lost Promise in Rural America; selected poems by Ocean Vuong, Tayi Tibble, and/or Erin Marie Lynch; Huang’s Disorientation; Jacobs’ graphic narrative Good Talk; and selected chapters from Irving’s Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race and Hochschild’s Stolen Pride: Loss, Shame, and the Rise of the Right.

From the medium's origin in the Early 20th century's interwar years, comic books have allowed minority and under-represented communities to make their voices heard and their stories told. Starting with the 1938 debut of Superman - a literal alien adopted by prototypical heartland Americans - immigrants, religious and ethnic minorities, and women have found colorful and fantastical ways to share their experiences. This course will explore the creative expression of some of those other voices of comic books.

Fall 2024 Special Topic: Teaching YA Literature

Adolescence, for many students, seems to be a period during which love of reading dies. In fact, studies reveal that “less than one-third of 13-year-olds read daily” and “only 16 percent of high school students” identify as “high frequent readers” (Gilmore 47; Newkirk 117).  But there is hope in the field of popular young adult (YA) literature!  In YA lit, adolescents can find books that match their interests and reading levels.  In this course, we’ll explore how YA literature can be used to foster lifelong readers.  We will read widely among genres of young adult literature (including both contemporary YA works as well as canonical literary works written for an adult audience but deemed appropriate for secondary students), focusing on the particular skills of literary criticism and theory required to establish a developmentally appropriate literature curriculum at the secondary level and to link young adult literature to canonical literary traditions.  Students should prepare themselves for quick-paced reading, discussion, research, and assignments in varied formats, from written responses to digital projects.

This course is the required CAPSTONE for English Teaching majors. Speak to your advisor about readiness for Capstone coursework. 

This course may be taken as an upper-level Elective by English majors following degree requirements activated in Fall 2023. 

This course may be taken for CAPSTONE credit by English Majors following degree requirements in place prior to Fall 2023. Pick up a Capstone Declaration Form in the main English Dept office (HS 230F) if interested.
