          GEP/GFR:Meets AH.  For 1500 years, heroic,
          romantic,   and   mystical   legends  have
          swirled around the quasi-historical figure
          of  Arthur.  This  course  focuses  on the
          origins  and  development  of  the English
          Arthur,  from the evidence for 5th century
          a  Romano-British  dux bellorum  to Celtic
          and  French influences.  Texts may include
          Geoffrey  of Monmouth, Sir  Gawain and the
          Green   Knight,   the  alliterative  Morte
          Arthure,  Sir  Thomas  Malory,  selections
          from   Edmund   Spenser's  Faerie  Queene,
          Alfred,  Lord  Tennyson's  Idylls  of  the
          King,  T. H. White, and Rosemary Sutcliff,
          as well as film adaptations.

ENGL 314  Topics in Drama NON-SHAKESPEAREAN DRAMA                 3 credits

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          covers  a  wide  range of  Elizabethan and
          Jacobean  drama written  by contemporaries
          of   Shakespeare,   such   as  Christopher
          Marlowe,  Thomas  Kyd, Ben  Jonson, George
          Chapman,  Thomas Middleton, John Fletcher,
          and John Webster. The aim of the course is
          to  give  students a sense  of the vibrant
          and   competitive  world  of  the  English
          theater  during this period.  Not only did
          the early modern era witness extraordinary
          social  changes-including  the  transition
          from  Tudor  to  Stuart  rule,  burgeoning
          overseas   exploration,   increased  urban
          population,   bouts   of  bubonic  plague,
          skirmishes  abroad,  and  civil  unrest at
          home-but  it also remains  one of the most
          astonishing  literary  epochs  in  British
          history.  This  course  will  explore  the
          relationship  of  the changing  social and
          literary  landscape to  the development of
          16th  and  17th  century drama  and of the
          theater  tradition in which it flourished.
          We  will  read Edward  II, Doctor Faustus,
          The   Spanish   Tragedy,   Volpone,  Bussy
          D'Ambois,   The   Duchess  of  Malfi,  The
          Changeling, Women Beware Women, The Maid's
          Tragedy,  The Broken Heart, A Woman Killed
          With  Kindness,  and  The  Knight  of  the
          Buring Pestle. Prerequisite: Completion of
          a 200-level literature course with a grade
          of "C" or better.

ENGL 320  Topics in Communication and Technology The              3 credits
          Memoir                                            

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  In this course
          we  will  examine the  memoir through both
          reading   and  writing.  We  will  read  a
          selection    of    contemporary   memoirs,
          discussing them both as artistic creations
          and purportedly factual documents. As part
          of  the  study  of the genre  and craft of
          memoir,   students   will   do  their  own
          writing, ranging from in-class free-writes
          to  at home writing  exercises that invite
          experimentation  with various storytelling
          techniques.   The  final  section  of  the
          course  will investigate the issues raised
          by  translating/shaping  a  written memoir
          into  an  aural performance.  Students may
          have  an  opportunity to  participate in a
          storytelling  performance  similar  to the
          Stoop          Storytelling         Series
          (stoopstorytelling.com).     Prerequisite:
          Completion   of   a  200-level  literature
          course with a grade of "C" or better.  For

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP:N/A.  GFR:Meets AH.   The obsession of
          post-modern novelists since the late 1960s
          to  revisit the Victorian age and revision
          the   19th-century   realist  novel  is  a
          phenomenon   that  has  attracted  growing
          critical  attention.  How do metafictional
          narrative  strategies operate  in order to
          address  concerns  of  feminism, religious
          doubt,     science,     repression,     or
          colonization?  Possible texts include John
          Fowles'   The  French  Lieutenant's  Woman
          (1969),  A. S.  Byatt's Possession (1990),
          Emma  Tennant's  Two Women  of London: The
          Strange  Case of Ms.  Jekyll and Mrs. Hyde

          fallen  women, maidservants,  psychics and
          spiritualists,    darwinian    scientists,
          detectives,  lunatics  and  famous authors
          present  problems for post-modern literary
          characters  such as  the "scholar-reader."
          We'll examine how an interplay between the
          cultural legacy of Thatcherite Britain and
          the  theoretical legacy  of deconstruction
          impacts   upon   narrative   form  in  the
          contemporary      novel.     Prerequisite:

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD A  study of the
          evolving "art" or formal character of this
          workhorse English meter from its inception
          to  the recent past.  We will look closely
          at  the  structure  of the  pentameter and
          incidentally the tetrameter couplet to see
          how  its handling on  the level of clause,
          sentence, and verse governs the remarkable
          range  of effects of  which it is capable.
          Featured poets include Chaucer, Gascoigne,
          Marlowe,  Donne,  Johnson,  Dryden,  Pope,
          Goldsmith,   Crabbe,   Coleridge,   Keats,
          Browning,   Frost,  Winters,  and  Lowell.

          GEP/GFR:Meets  AH.  Focusing on narratives
          and  poetry  of  the  Hebrew  Bible,  this
          course    will   consider   the   literary
          qualities   of   these   texts   and   the
          connections  between  the Bible  and other
          selected  literary works. We will consider
          issues  of  translation  and  the internal
          relationships  among biblical stories. Our
          discussions   will  be  informed  by  both
          literary    and    biblical   scholarship.
          Non-biblical   texts   will   represent  a
          variety  of genres from  poetry to science
          fiction. We will examine the ways in which
          the  Bible is revisited  and revisioned in
          these pages. Prerequisite: Completion of a
          200-level  literature course  with a grade

ENGL 369  Race and Ethnicity in U.S. Literature                   3 credits

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP/GFR:Meets AH.  At the beginning of the
          20th  century, W.E.B. Du  Bois wrote, "The
          problem  of  the twentieth  century is the
          problem of the color-line."  His statement
          was  made  against  the  backdrop  of  the
          history  of chattel slavery  in the United
          States   and   the  continuing  denial  of
          freedom  for  descendants  of  slavery. We
          will  consider the shifting manifestations
          of   this   color  line  in  mid-19th  and
          20th-century literatures, and how the line
          of race intersects with ethnicity.  How do
          varied   social  identities  -  religious,
          gendered  and classed - converge with race
          and  ethnicity in different contexts, such
          as slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction,
          imperialism and immigration? Early writers
          may include Herman Melville, William Wells
          Brown,  Frederick Douglass, Harriet Wilson
          and  Harriet Beecher Stowe.  From the 20th
          century,  works may be drawn from W. E. B.
          Du Bois, Zitkala-Sa, Anzia Yezierska, Jean
          Toomer,   Maxine   Hong   Kingston,   Toni
          Morrison    and   Leslie   Marmon   Silko.

ENGL 387  Web Design and Multimedia Authoring                     3 credits

(PermReq) Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD 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
          and a 200-level English course with grades
          of   "C"  or  better.  Permission  of  the
          instructor is required.

          works  of  modernist fiction  while asking
          the  questions: why do  so many modernists
          write     encyclopedic    fiction?    What

          of  character,  place,  and  time  develop
          differently  in the  modernist long novel?

          interconnections   between   content   and
          experimental  style, resonances of history
          and  culture,  and  the sheer  pleasure of

ENGL 442  Seminar In Visual Literacy                              3 credits

(PermReq) Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD The argument for
          visual  literacy is the argument that just
          as  texts can be read if we learn to speak
          the    language    (both   literally   and
          structurally),  so  too  can  we  learn to
          "read"  images, which have  their own kind
          of  language  -  a visual  one. This class
          will  focus on the reading, interpretation
          and creation of visual culture in the form
          of  images,  video and  graphic novels. It
          will also investigate ways in which visual
          and  textual languages often  cross over -
          from  cave  paintings  to the  language of
          typography.      Prerequisites:     Senior
          standing and permission of the instructor.

          Gender in Irish Literature                        

(PermReq) Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          explores the significance of gender in the
          construction     of     nationalist    and
          colonialist ideology in Ireland and in the
          formation  of  the Irish  nation state. In
          particular  we  analyze  a  familiar topos
          whereby  Ireland  has  been imagined  as a
          woman.   This  topos  has  a long-standing
          history  in Irish  Literature and includes
          the  ninth-century poem, "The Old Woman of
          Beare," a 1364 ode that begins "Ireland is
          a woman," Edmund Spenser's personification
          of  Ireland as a female nymph in Book V of
          The   Faerie   Queene   (1590),  Johnathan
          Swift's  "The  Story  of an  Injured Lady"
          (1707),  Sydney  Owenson's The  Wild Irish
          Girl     (1806),     and    more    modern
          manifestations   such   as  W.  B.  Yeat's
          Cathleen  ni Houlihan,  James Joyce's Anna
          Livia  Plurabelle, Seamus Heaney's "Act of
          Union"  (1975),  Paul  Muldoon's "Aisling"
          (1983),  and Eavan Boland's Object Lessons
          (1995).  As  we  analyze  texts  by  these
          authors  and others, we  will consider the
          permutations  of  the body  poitic and why
          some Irish writers have found it difficult
          to    extricate    themselves   from   the
          simplication    of    the    nation-gender
          equation.  Prerequisites: ENGL  301 with a
          grade of "C" or better,senior standing and
          permission  of the instructor. Course will

ENGL 493  Seminar in Communication and Technology                 3 credits
          Seminar in Communication and Technology           

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          explores the social nature of learning and
          how     individuals,     through     their
          interactions   with   others,  can  become
          successful   participants  in  communities
          formed  out  of shared  practices. With an
          emphasis on the role of genre in mediating
          activity,  we  will  examine  how  and why
          individuals, through their tool-use (e.g.,
          genre,    language,    music,   computing,
          architecture)    can    learn    to    act
          purposefully  so  as  to  achieve  desired
          outcomes.  But  rather  than understanding
          these    activities,    motivations,   and
          outcomes  as individual-specific,  we will
          uncover  the  ways  in which  the activity
          systems in which action occurs are part of
          a  larger socio-cultural network that sets
          the   conditions   by  which  success  and
          failure  can  occur. Finally,  we will not
          only   analyze  mediated  activity  within
          specific  communities  of  practice (e.g.,
          classrooms,    workplace    organizations,
          academic   disciplines,   etc.)  but  also
          develop   strategies   by   which  we  can
          critically  examine  our  own  tool-use as
          participants, or would-be participants, of
          certain communities. Prerequisites: Senior
          standing and permission of the instructor.

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG This  seminar explores

          participants  in communities formed out of

          role  of  genre in  mediating activity, we

          examine  our own tool-use as participants,
          or   would-be   participants,  of  certain
