          examine   the  many  different  facets  of

          to  the painted canvases  of Edward Hopper
          and Edvard Munch and to the silver screen,

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP/GFR:Meets  AH.  "Wickedness  is a myth
          invented by good people to account for the
          curious  attractiveness  of  others," said
          Oscar  Wilde, wicked wit and figurehead of
          the   Decadent   movement   in   the  arts
          -Victorian  England's  equivalent  to  the
          cult  of "sex & drugs  & rock n' roll" and
          "it's  better  to  burn  out than  to fade
          away."  In this discussion-oriented class,
          we'll read novels, essays, poems and plays
          by   Wilde   and   others  who  challenged
          traditional     values     and    explored
          sensuality, style, idleness, and moral and
          artistic    "perversion"    as   keys   to
          self-knowledge  and human  progress. We'll
          also  read  some  anti-Decadent  and  some
          non-fiction  works in order to get a sense
          of  the world that  these writers lived in
          and  reacted against, and  we'll glance at
          Dostoyevsky,    Baudelaire,    and    some
          20th-century   experiments  in  decadence.

ENGL 350  Major British and American Writers :                    3 credits
          Milton at 400                                     

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD Milton  at 400
          has  a double aim: to understand the works
          of      John      Milton      in     their
          seventeenth-century context and to explore
          the  long afterlife and influence of those
          works  in  English  literature.   Milton's
          impact on later centuries is immeasurable.
          Born in 1608, his poetry, which many would
          claim  is inextricable  from his politics,
          has   for   four   hundred   years   awed,
          overwhelmed, inspired, and stifled writers
          in  his tradition.  Throughout this course
          we will read not only such poets as Andrew
          Marvell,   who  had  direct  contact  with
          Milton  in  the kiln of  the English Civil
          War,  but also those such as William Blake
          and  Percy Shelley, who,  over one hundred
          years later still felt the need to respond
          to him. We will trace Milton's biographies
          from  the  earliest record  offered by his
          nephew  in the seventeenth  century to the
          great  nineteenth-century biographies; and
          we  will balance the biographical material
          with  the famous (and sometimes notorious)
          English  poet/critics  of Milton,  such as
          Samuel  Johnson, T. S.  Eliot, and William
          Empson.    Finally,  we  will  read  later
          nineteenth-  and  twentieth-century poetry
          that  challenges or engages Milton's great
          poems.  But  the course  will provide more
          than  an  overview  of Milton  in the last
          four hundred years: it will also attest to
          Milton's  continuing vitality  as a poetic
          (and  perhaps even as a political) figure.
          Prerequisites:  Completion of  a 200-level
          literature   course  with  a  grade  C  or
          better.  SPECIAL NOTE: This  course can be
          taken  either as an English elective or as
          a  seminar.  Those taking the  course as a
          seminar  will have additional requirements
          appropriate to a course at a higher level.
          Permission   of  the  instructor  is  also
          necessary to take the course as a seminar.

          the moment she left her home in Domremy to
          seek  her king up to the present day, Joan
          of   Arc  has  challenged,  inspired,  and
          ultimately     resisted     attempts    to
          characterize  her  according  to  accepted
          norms   of   gender,   class,   education,
          sexuality, or religion. This course offers
          a  cross-disciplinary  examination  of her
          life   and   afterlife,   emphasizing  how
          creative   writers,   historians,   visual
          artists,  filmmakers and  musicians remake
          her image in keeping with socio-political,
          cultural, and religious values of the age.
          Likely   materials  include  Christine  de
          Pisan, Shakespeare, Michelet, Twain, Shaw,

          PERMISSION REQUIRED. This course will give
          students  a  foundation in  the production
          and analysis of digital texts.  Like other
          kinds  of texts, digital texts require the
          exercise  of  language: in  this case, the
          "languages"  of  code and  image.  We will
          thus   learn   to   use  Hypertext  Markup
          Language   (XHTML)   and  Cascading  Style
          Sheets (CSS) - the code basis of web texts
          -    in   order   to   gain   a   thorough
          understanding of digital writing.  We will
          also  learn  to  "read"  digital  texts in
          their   many  incarnations  -  web  texts,
          hypertexts, and interactive media (CD/DVD)
          texts.   We will learn the complexities of
          digital  narrative  and design,  and learn
          how to compose creative and critical texts
          in our new medium. Prerequisites: ENGL 100

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  THIS COURSE IS
          PERMISSION  REQUIRED.  In  this  course we
          will examine the concept of happiness from
          three      perspectives:      philosophic,
          psychologic, and literary. We will ask how
          happiness   has   been  defined  in  these
          traditions  and how  practitioners in each
          believe it can be achieved. Throughout the
          semester  students  will  work  to develop
          their own theories of happiness. Among the
          philosophers   we   may  read  are  Plato,
          Aristotle,     Epictetus,    and    Dewey.
          Psychologists  may include Argyle, Nettle,

          Melville and American Democracy                   

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  THIS COURSE IS
          PERMISSION   REQUIRED.  One  of  the  most
          influential  writers  and  pivotal  in the
          formation  of an  American literary canon,
          Herman  Melville was not  so well known in
          his  time. Initially well-received for his
          adventure  stories, after  the publication
          of  Moby-Dick the  popular presses labeled
          him  "insane," or the "man who lived among
          the  cannibals." Although Melville did not
          engage  directly in popular reforms of the
          day,   his   writings   reflect  a  unique
          perspective   on   questions   about   the
          constitution    of    the   first   modern
          democratic   republic,   as  well  as  how
          matters of manifest destiny and expansion,
          religion,  class, race, and slavery affect
          the  meaning of  democratic communities in
          the   United   States.  This  course  will
          investigate  the place of  Melville in the
          American  canon.  We  will  focus  on  the
          development of his writing and perspective
          on the possibilities and problems with the
          nature  of American democracy. Works to be
          studied  include Typee, Moby-Dick, Pierre;
          or  the  Ambiguities,  Benito  Cereno, The
          Confidence  Man, Billy  Budd, and selected
          stories and poems. Prerequisites: ENGL 301

ENGL 493  Seminar in Communication and Technology                 3 credits
          Democracy, Rhetoric and Technology                

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  THIS COURSE IS
          PERMISSION  REQUIRED. This course examines
          the  ways in which  U.S. politics, in both
          its  language and  practices, have changed
          because  of  digital  technology.  Through
          everything  from  the  World  Wide  Web to
          electronic  voting machines,  the rhetoric
          of  politics,  access to  information, and
          civic   life   have  evolved  in  new  and
          interesting ways. We will examine the 2008
          presidential  elections  in light  of this
          evolution  and  analyze  the  intersection
          between     democracy,    rhetoric,    and
          technology  at  the  height  of  the  U.S.
          democratic  process.  Prerequisites:  ENGL

          The Discourses of Happiness                       

(PermReq) Grade   Method:  REG/AUD  THIS  COURSE  IS
          PERMISSION  REQUIRED.  In  this  course we
          will examine the concept of happiness from
          three      perspectives:      philosophic,
          psychologic, and literary. We will ask how
          happiness   has   been  defined  in  these
          traditions  and how  practitioners in each
          believe it can be achieved. Throughout the
          semester  students  will  work  to develop
          their own theories of happiness. Among the
          philosophers   we   may  read  are  Plato,
          Aristotle,     Epictetus,    and    Dewey.
          Psychologists  may include Argyle, Nettle,
          Haidt, and Frankl. Works of literature may
          include  pieces  by  Alice  Walker, Camus,
          W.E.B. Du Bois, Tolstoy, and Willa Cather.
          Prerequisites:  ENGL  301 with  a grade of
          "C"  or better, senior  standing, and some
          familiarity  with modernism and permission
          of the instructor: mccarthy@umbc.edu. Also
          listed as ENGL 419.
