          hallucinatory and irrational, the sensual,
          the      morally     and     aesthetically
          experimental.   Authors will include Lewis
          Carroll,    Oscar   Wilde,   de   Quincey,
          Coleridge,  G.M. Hopkins, and their modern
          literary   descendants,  with  glances  at

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  Much Modernist
          fiction   reacted   against   the   "baggy
          monster"   novels  of  the  Victorians  by
          cultivating  economy  in  presentation and
          style.  The  trend  was hospitable  to the
          novella-longer than a short story, shorter
          than most novels. This course will examine
          the  American Modernist novella  both as a
          form,   with   its   own   tendencies  and
          peculiarities,   and   as  a  vehicle  for
          characteristically  Modernist  themes  and
          approaches   to   the   representation  of
          experience.  Authors and works  to be read
          include   Edith   Wharton's  Ethan  Frome,
          William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, Glenway
          Wescott's  The Pilgrim  Hawk, and novellas
          by K.A. Porter, Nathanael West and others.

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD The course will
          examine   the   process  and  the  art  of
          literture-to-film adaptations. What is the
          nature   of   the   "literary"   and   the
          "cinematic?"  Key moments from the history
          of  the  novel,  from  Robinson  Crusoe to
          Lolita,  will allow us  to interrogate the
          diverse   modes  of  translating  literary
          texts  to  moving  images.  Our  path will
          ultimately  bring us to  analyze film as a
          commodity and cultural artifact.

          GEP:Meets WI and AH. GFR:Meets AH.  No one
          is  indifferent to Jane  Austen. A crucial
          figure  in the history of  the novel and a
          powerful   figure   in   English  literary
          history  generally, Austen is venerated or
          despised  with  peculiar  intensity  - for
          being  a brilliant stylist or a provincial
          bore,   an   instrument   of   commonplace
          repression  or  of ironic  subversion.  We
          will   test   these  and  other  views  by
          studying   Austen's   fiction  (Northanger
          Abbey,  Sense  and Sensibility,  Pride and
          Prejudice,   Mansfield   Park,   Emma  and
          Persuasion)   within  the  sociohistorical

          examine the techniques and approaches of a

          writers, and students will apply what they
          discover in writing their own essays about
          place.  Along  the  way, we  will consider
          such  questions  as: What is  the point of
          writing  about travel? What subtexts do we
          find  in  writing  that  explores "exotic"
          landscapes  and  cultures?  What  are  the
          effects  of  travel  writing in  an era of
          globalization?  To what extent is travel a
          metaphor  for exploring  the self? Authors

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will examine the widespread adaptations of
          Greek  and  Roman  myth  in  early  modern
          literature.  The course will include texts
          from  different classical  genres (such as
          pastoral  poetry and romance),  as well as
          texts  that trace a  particular myth (such
          as  the  tale of Orpheus  and Eurydice) or
          re-work  the  range  of  ancient  gods and
          heroes  for a Christian audience. Students
          will  become acquainted with the important
          Renaissance  compendia  of myths,  such as
          Boccaccio's  Genealogia  deorum  gentilium
          (Genealogy of the Pagan Gods) and Vincenzo
          Cartari's Imagini (translated into English
          in 1599). The course readings will include
          Arthur  Golding's  translation  of  Ovid's
          Metamorphoses,    which    was    one   of
          Shakespeare's   favorite   books;   Edmund
          Spenser's   Shepheardes  Calender;  Philip

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will  examine  what it means  to read Walt
          Whitman  as  an  innovative  poet,  social
          visionary,  and  national  icon.  The main
          focus  will be on  Leaves of Grass (1892),
          but  we  will  also read  Whitman's little
          known   novel   Franklin   Evans,  or  the
          Inebriate   (1842)  and  his  prose  works
          Democratic Vistas (1870) and Specimen Days
          (1882).   We  will  explore  the  specific
          features of Whitman's free verse, consider
          the  relation  between  his  revolutionary
          poetics and his utopian hopes for American
          society,  and reflect on his pivotal place
          in American literature. In the final weeks
          of  the course, we will talk about Whitman
          as  "contemporary" of some of today's most
          daring   poets,  including  John  Ashbery,
          Adrienne  Rich, Joshua Beckman, and Noelle
          Kocot.   Permission   of   the  instructor
          required.   Instructor:   Piotr   Gwiazda,
          gwiazda@umbc.edu.

ENGL 486  Seminar in Teaching Composition: Theory                 3 credits
          and Practice                                      

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  Since the late
          1960s  a revolution has taken place in the
          teaching  of composition. This course will
          trace   the   profound   changes   in  our
          understanding  of the  teaching of writing
          by   examining   key  theories  and  major
          players   during   this   35-year  period.
          Included  will be expressivist theories of
          Murray  and Elbow, cognitive approaches of
          Emig  and  Flower,  social constructionist
          perspectives  of Bartholomae  and Bizzell,
          as  well as the political approaches.  Our
          readings  will include a number of genres:
          autobiography, writers' journals, academic
          and  personal  essays, and  social science
          research   reports.  Students  will  write
          three  papers  in which,  employing course
          theories  and genres, they will experiment
          with  their own writing, possibly creating
          their  own  "mixed  genres."   As students
          discuss   and  write  about  the  assigned
          literature,  they  will be  asked to bring
          theories   of  teaching  composition  into
          dialogue   with   practice,  that  is,  to
          consider   how   these   theories  may  be
          instantiated     in    actual    classroom
          situations.  Permission of  the instructor
          required.  Instructor:  Lucille  McCarthy,
          mccarthy@umbc.edu.   Also  listed  as ENGL
          686.

ENGL 493  Seminar in Communication and Technology                 3 credits

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will    cover    issues   of   information
          ownership,   copyright   and  exchange  in
          digital  cultures.  We  will start  with a
          general overview of what it means to "own"
          objects  and information within an economy
          of  exchange,  and  move  into information
          economies   and   their   relationship  to
          technological  developments. We will learn
          about  the  current  "copyright  wars" and
          their relationship to developing movements
          in  open source and  open content. In your
          final  assignment,  you will  be given the
          opportunity  to  work on  a practical open
          source  or  open  content project  of your
          choice,   with  the  idea  that  you  will
          "release"    this    project    into   the
          information  ecology  by  the  end  of the
          semester.  Permission  of  the  instructor
          required. Instructor: Helen Burgess.
