As the new realities of the global village erode long-standing assumptions about discrete nationhood and fixed cultures, the concept of what it means to be an American is also shifting. Through representative literary works, this course explores the challenges individuals from various ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds confront within a pluralistic society. Students construct a more inclusive definition of culture, assess traditional attitudes about race and ethnicity, and appreciate just how deeply Native, African, Hispanic, Asian, and European Americans have enriched our national identity.

This course provides students with an in-depth study of how the portrayal of people with disabilities of many kinds - physical, emotional, social, and mental - in literature is reflective of the social and historical context in which it was written. Students apply close textual analysis of the imagery used to describe people with disabilities and evaluate the cultural attitudes this use of language reveals. Students read literature written by both disabled and non-disabled authors and analyze the ways that many stereotypical portrayals of disability undermine the disability community. Questions of how a culture decides what is "normal," how portrayals of the disability experience in literature differ between adults and children, and how the advocacy role is portrayed in literature are also examined. The goal of this course is to discover how literature can challenge our own assumptions about the experience of the disabled by contemplating what ultimately makes us human.

This course explores the interaction between film and literature in order to introduce students to major literary texts and their adaptations through film. Students will have the opportunity to read and analyze a selection of novels, plays, and poetry from major American and British writers. The course invites students to investigate cinematic interpretations of major works, and to position them within their historical and cultural contexts (taking careful consideration of portrayals of race, gender, class, religion, and sexuality). Students will practice analyzing literary text and film, and engage in scholarly and critical research. Additionally, they will use their work over the course of the semester to either create their own research on the topic or develop a lesson plan that incorporates literature and film for K-12 students. Selections of texts and films will represent commonly taught works.
