Join us on a journey through a thousand years of British history, beginning in an Anglo-Saxon mead hall with a couple of characters named Beowulf and Grendel and even a dragon. From there we'll go on a pilgrimage to Canterbury with the Good Wife of Bath, ride alongside Arthur's knights, sit at Queen Elizabeth’s feet, get up close and personal with Satan, ride a slave-ship to the new world, debate the state of Ireland, and hear some words of wisdom from Samuel Johnson. It will be quite a ride, so hang on tight. (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Ready to explore the darkest places of the heart, the mind, the soul? Are you longing to “fade far away, dissolve, and quite forget” the modern world for a little while? Then, join us as we grapple with the tumultuous relationship between Catherine and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights and consider Josef Conrad’s harsh criticism of imperialism in Heart of Darkness. LITR225 delves deep into the literary periods of the Romantics, Victorians, Imperialists and Modernists. Learn how society and historical events shaped our authors, and in turn, how our authors impacted society. Come prepared to debate, analyze and share your personal insights in forum conversations and written assignments. (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

We hit the ground running with the bloodthirsty monster, Grendel, who roams the Danish countryside and cheer on the noble Beowulf who jumps in to save the day. Next, we move on to one of Chaucer’s bawdy tales and read about the pitiful competition between two lovesick knights. In Shakespeare’s “As you like it,” we witness an Elizabethan Rom-Com of tortured lovers who roll their eyes and sigh deeply. After aggressive cannibals face off against Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, we take on Mary Shelley’s greatest creation: Frankenstein. And still there’s more! Jane Austen and George Eliot pull back the curtain on the petty machinations, weaknesses, and hypocrisy of the upper class in 19th century England while Yeats, Woolf, and Orwell ask probing questions about society, morality, and our fellow creatures. Join us in ENGL311 for a rollicking fun adventure! (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Don’t miss LITR315! We play the classics from Shakespeare to Sting and everything in between. In an eight-week exploration of British verse, we’ll ask the important questions: Was Chaucer a feminist? Was Satan the hero in Milton’s work? Were the otherworldly visions of Blake for real? We’ll also take a look at the conspiracy theories that rocked the poetry world. Where did the conspiracy theory of Paul McCartney’s death come from? And who was the actual recipient of Shakespeare’s sonnets? These are just some of the showstoppers we discuss in British Poetry from Blake to the Beatles. With three projects and no quizzes, don’t let this one get away!

Literature has the ability to shape the way a nation thinks and behaves; it both responds to important issues in society and (re)shapes them. For far too long, the literature of cultures on the periphery of American society have been ignored because they do not fit comfortably into mainstream culture. Yet, from voices within the Native American population to Appalachian artists to LGBTQ groups, for example, cultures on the periphery have consistently helped shape the American literary identity and have continued to influence American society long after the publication of their works. This course lends credence to the legitimacy of the contributions of these underrepresented cultures and explores the role they have in shaping American literature—past, present, and future.

American writers are credited with the creation of the short story and have defined the genre for the world. From Nathaniel Hawthorne's first published collection in 1837, America's short stories have explored topics such as witches and demon worship, mysterious murders and insanity, tall tales from the Wild West, love and loss, and the ethics that reflect the cultural identity of Americans. Through a variety of short stories, students will examine the components that embody this original and compressed art form and uncover the ingenuity behind this precise and difficult genre of fiction.

To the rich oral tradition of Native Americans, new European?arrivals added their own lyrics and sense of morality in a Neoclassic style. Not long after, the Romantics rejected this rational view of the world and instead explored emotions: love, obsession, fear, patriotism, and more. Later, in a country torn apart by fighting, Realists voiced their despair in poetry as the nation attempted to recover from the Civil War, and not long after that, the Modernists struggled with finding an identity in a new world shaped by World War I, economic depression, and modernization. Finally, Postmodernists and contemporary poets rejected everything and nothing; to them, anything was possible, and an explosion of new voices, experiences, and ideas emerged. Explore all these?American?movements—and more—in?American?Poetry! (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

This course explores the emergence of a distinctly Black modernist and post-modernist literary discourse in fiction, poetry, drama, and criticism published from the middle of the twentieth century to the present, often in response to and in conversation with contemporaneous Anglo-American literary movements and trends. We will investigate African American writers’ engagement with the “Wright School of Social Protest”; the evolution of the Black Arts/Black Aesthetic Movements of the 1960s and 1970s; the emergence of Black feminist literature, criticism, and theory in the 1970s and 1980s; and the so-called “third renaissance” of the 1990s and 2000s.

“Writing is something that you can never do as well as it can be done,” said Ernest Hemingway, and he did it better than most. Through his adventurous life and authentic work, he became a larger-than-life cultural icon of his time and one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Through his work, this course examines the genesis and influences that made Hemingway the writer we know, the writer that was selected for the sort of quality and precision that defined his writing and earned the respect and recognition of the Nobel Committee for his “powerful, style-making mastery of the art of modern narration.” (Prerequisite: COLL300)

Mark Twain’s works are filled with danger and adventure, rollicking humor, biting satire, and memorable characters that wrestle with universal and timeless issues. In his writing, he asks us to consider what it means to be human, and in Mark Twain’s characters, we often see and hear parts of ourselves which helps us hone in on our own humanity. Through social satire and a wicked irreverent sense of humor, his works became timeless; while he lived, he was known as “the funniest man on earth.” But Mark Twain also used his distinct voice to expose the problems and issues that faced society often by highlighting the quirks of its members. LITR408 examines Twain’s literary genius and the man behind the genius who unflinchingly proclaimed, “I am not an American. I am the American.” (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Why did Louisa May Alcott feel the need to write her "blood and thunder tales" under a pseudonym? Why, in the nineteenth century, did Nathanael Hawthorne describe women writers as "a damned mob of scribbling women"? And how might we apply feminist theory to better understand the constructs and corresponding roles of gender and how that is reflected in both literature and lived experience? Find out the answers to these questions and more as we explore how women have established their voices and given authenticity to women’s writing and experience throughout the course of literary history.

Without realizing it, you have been exposed to Middle Eastern Literature for most of your life. One of the first important texts in history, The Epic of Gilgamesh, so influenced the ancient world that parts of it are found in the Bible and other major works from before the time of Christ. The Middle East is known as the “cradle of civilization,” and true to its history, the region today continues to capture the attention of the world. Stories adapted from thousand+ year old texts, like Aladdin, for example, have earned billions of dollars at the box office and introduced wider audiences to the stories of the Middle East. The literature that comes from the region, both then and now, is filled with passion and power and is a testament to the region’s relevance throughout history. Our course will begin with essential texts and continue through newer works that show the cultural challenges to be found in today’s complex environment.

ENGL220 introduces students to several different forms of technical writing while challenging them to engage regularly with the field at a scholarly level. Major concepts include collaboration, audience, document design, persuasion, the use of mobile technologies, and revision. In this course, readings are discovered by students in relevant technical writing journals in the AMU/APUS Trefry Library. As students hone their academic research skills, they are tasked with reporting back to their peers regarding the found articles that are relevant to that week’s writing objectives. Weekly class discussions are set up to simulate the technical writing work groups that are routinely found in companies and organizations, and should offer students a place to brainstorm and refine ideas for their larger assignments. Students will compose product proposals, instructions, labels, and a final web-based product manual. These assignments are designed to build on one another and culminate in the final project which can be included in a professional portfolio. (Prerequisites: ENGL101 or ENGL110)

Whether we realize it or not, we encounter unique characters, settings, circumstances, and situations nearly every day in almost every way we interact in the world. These encounters are filled with meaning that can only be unlocked through deep processing of the events and an evaluation of their effects on our lives. In ENGL322, we learn how to process our encounters and interactions. In order to become compelling first-person narrators, then, we will study what forms a personal essay can take. We will read a wide variety of essays that will act as models of good writing and choose from among them those that resonate with us. Then, we will write our own personal accounts, using the components of voice, setting, structure, theme, and style.

Writing is an expression of self. It is the process of putting yourself, your thoughts, your ideas, your deepest fantasies, and your greatest fears on paper. Nobody writes the way you do! And nobody can write what you choose to write in the same exact way! ENGL420 will focus on maximizing self-expression in writing; in other words, together, we will discover the voice inside longing to be heard, longing to sing out. We will hone your writing ability using tried and true techniques so that you can tell your stories in a way that is accessible to others. In ENGL420, we will explore fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, songwriting and screenwriting, and develop the tools and the methods necessary to know the differences among them. Bring your creative spirit, your imagination, and your willingness to risk to write the story of your life. (Prerequisite: ENGL120)

Join us on a journey through a thousand years of British history, beginning in an Anglo-Saxon mead hall with a couple of characters named Beowulf and Grendel and even a dragon. From there we'll go on a pilgrimage to Canterbury with the Good Wife of Bath, ride alongside Arthur's knights, sit at Queen Elizabeth’s feet, get up close and personal with Satan, ride a slave-ship to the new world, debate the state of Ireland, and hear some words of wisdom from Samuel Johnson. It will be quite a ride, so hang on tight. (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

We hit the ground running with the bloodthirsty monster, Grendel, who roams the Danish countryside and cheer on the noble Beowulf who jumps in to save the day. Next, we move on to one of Chaucer’s bawdy tales and read about the pitiful competition between two lovesick knights. In Shakespeare’s “As you like it,” we witness an Elizabethan Rom-Com of tortured lovers who roll their eyes and sigh deeply. After aggressive cannibals face off against Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, we take on Mary Shelley’s greatest creation: Frankenstein. And still there’s more! Jane Austen and George Eliot pull back the curtain on the petty machinations, weaknesses, and hypocrisy of the upper class in 19th century England while Yeats, Woolf, and Orwell ask probing questions about society, morality, and our fellow creatures. Join us in ENGL311 for a rollicking fun adventure! (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Don’t miss LITR315! We play the classics from Shakespeare to Sting and everything in between. In an eight-week exploration of British verse, we’ll ask the important questions: Was Chaucer a feminist? Was Satan the hero in Milton’s work? Were the otherworldly visions of Blake for real? We’ll also take a look at the conspiracy theories that rocked the poetry world. Where did the conspiracy theory of Paul McCartney’s death come from? And who was the actual recipient of Shakespeare’s sonnets? These are just some of the showstoppers we discuss in British Poetry from Blake to the Beatles. With three projects and no quizzes, don’t let this one get away!

Literature has the ability to shape the way a nation thinks and behaves; it both responds to important issues in society and (re)shapes them. For far too long, the literature of cultures on the periphery of American society have been ignored because they do not fit comfortably into mainstream culture. Yet, from voices within the Native American population to Appalachian artists to LGBTQ groups, for example, cultures on the periphery have consistently helped shape the American literary identity and have continued to influence American society long after the publication of their works. This course lends credence to the legitimacy of the contributions of these underrepresented cultures and explores the role they have in shaping American literature—past, present, and future.

American writers are credited with the creation of the short story and have defined the genre for the world. From Nathaniel Hawthorne's first published collection in 1837, America's short stories have explored topics such as witches and demon worship, mysterious murders and insanity, tall tales from the Wild West, love and loss, and the ethics that reflect the cultural identity of Americans. Through a variety of short stories, students will examine the components that embody this original and compressed art form and uncover the ingenuity behind this precise and difficult genre of fiction.

To the rich oral tradition of Native Americans, new European?arrivals added their own lyrics and sense of morality in a Neoclassic style. Not long after, the Romantics rejected this rational view of the world and instead explored emotions: love, obsession, fear, patriotism, and more. Later, in a country torn apart by fighting, Realists voiced their despair in poetry as the nation attempted to recover from the Civil War, and not long after that, the Modernists struggled with finding an identity in a new world shaped by World War I, economic depression, and modernization. Finally, Postmodernists and contemporary poets rejected everything and nothing; to them, anything was possible, and an explosion of new voices, experiences, and ideas emerged. Explore all these?American?movements—and more—in?American?Poetry! (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Without realizing it, you have been exposed to Middle Eastern Literature for most of your life. One of the first important texts in history, The Epic of Gilgamesh, so influenced the ancient world that parts of it are found in the Bible and other major works from before the time of Christ. The Middle East is known as the “cradle of civilization,” and true to its history, the region today continues to capture the attention of the world. Stories adapted from thousand+ year old texts, like Aladdin, for example, have earned billions of dollars at the box office and introduced wider audiences to the stories of the Middle East. The literature that comes from the region, both then and now, is filled with passion and power and is a testament to the region’s relevance throughout history. Our course will begin with essential texts and continue through newer works that show the cultural challenges to be found in today’s complex environment.

ENGL220 introduces students to several different forms of technical writing while challenging them to engage regularly with the field at a scholarly level. Major concepts include collaboration, audience, document design, persuasion, the use of mobile technologies, and revision. In this course, readings are discovered by students in relevant technical writing journals in the AMU/APUS Trefry Library. As students hone their academic research skills, they are tasked with reporting back to their peers regarding the found articles that are relevant to that week’s writing objectives. Weekly class discussions are set up to simulate the technical writing work groups that are routinely found in companies and organizations, and should offer students a place to brainstorm and refine ideas for their larger assignments. Students will compose product proposals, instructions, labels, and a final web-based product manual. These assignments are designed to build on one another and culminate in the final project which can be included in a professional portfolio. (Prerequisites: ENGL101 or ENGL110)

Whether we realize it or not, we encounter unique characters, settings, circumstances, and situations nearly every day in almost every way we interact in the world. These encounters are filled with meaning that can only be unlocked through deep processing of the events and an evaluation of their effects on our lives. In ENGL322, we learn how to process our encounters and interactions. In order to become compelling first-person narrators, then, we will study what forms a personal essay can take. We will read a wide variety of essays that will act as models of good writing and choose from among them those that resonate with us. Then, we will write our own personal accounts, using the components of voice, setting, structure, theme, and style. In this way, we will develop a richer understanding of the world in which we interact. (Prerequisite: ENGL120)

Writing is an expression of self. It is the process of putting yourself, your thoughts, your ideas, your deepest fantasies, and your greatest fears on paper. Nobody writes the way you do! And nobody can write what you choose to write in the same exact way! ENGL420 will focus on maximizing self-expression in writing; in other words, together, we will discover the voice inside longing to be heard, longing to sing out. We will hone your writing ability using tried and true techniques so that you can tell your stories in a way that is accessible to others. In ENGL420, we will explore fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, songwriting and screenwriting, and develop the tools and the methods necessary to know the differences among them. Bring your creative spirit, your imagination, and your willingness to risk to write the story of your life. (Prerequisite: ENGL120)

American writers are credited with the creation of the short story and have defined the genre for the world. From Nathaniel Hawthorne's first published collection in 1837, America's short stories have explored topics such as witches and demon worship, mysterious murders and insanity, tall tales from the Wild West, love and loss, and the ethics that reflect the cultural identity of Americans. Through a variety of short stories, students will examine the components that embody this original and compressed art form and uncover the ingenuity behind this precise and difficult genre of fiction. (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)

Playing third base doesn’t come naturally to most folks; instead, it requires dedication to become good at it. In the same way, learning how to cook or developing a new app takes a lot of time and commitment. As with any new skill, perseverance and consistent daily practice lead to success. And so it is with writing. It’s not the mystery most people make it out to be; in fact, when you get right down to it, writing is pretty formulaic. It’s a series of skills that, once learned, require a commitment to practicing them. In other words, no one is born a great writer; instead, writers learn their craft through hard work. ENGL101 identifies the basic building blocks of writing, and as each new skill is learned, it is practiced in a safe and supportive environment. Come take the mystery out of writing in ENGL101: Proficiency in Writing.

ENGL220 introduces students to several different forms of technical writing while challenging them to engage regularly with the field at a scholarly level. Major concepts include collaboration, audience, document design, persuasion, the use of mobile technologies, and revision. In this course, readings are discovered by students in relevant technical writing journals in the AMU/APUS Trefry Library. As students hone their academic research skills, they are tasked with reporting back to their peers regarding the found articles that are relevant to that week’s writing objectives. Weekly class discussions are set up to simulate the technical writing work groups that are routinely found in companies and organizations, and should offer students a place to brainstorm and refine ideas for their larger assignments. Students will compose product proposals, instructions, labels, and a final web-based product manual. These assignments are designed to build on one another and culminate in the final project which can be included in a professional portfolio. (Prerequisites: ENGL101 or ENGL110)

Information Literacy and Global Citizenship builds students’ information literacy skills in the international relations/global studies context. Students analyze scholarly sources in the discipline, identifying the types of issues and questions scholars pursue, the discursive conventions they employ, and their methods of engaging in dialogue with and citing sources. After identifying their own discipline specific research question, students select and use appropriate research tools, developing complex search strategies that help them to find relevant scholarly information on their topics. They evaluate sources and information to determine their authority, reliability, timeliness as well as the quality and underlying assumptions of the arguments presented. They synthesize the information they’ve found with their own ideas, effectively integrating source material into their papers and citing that material appropriately. Finally, the course asks students to reflect upon the ways in which the information literacy skills they’ve acquired provide a foundation for both global citizenship and lifelong learning. NOTE: Students may not earn credit for both IRLS200 and previous course IRLS303.

Presidents winning elections, countries declaring war, spouses saving a marriage, students earning scholarships—all of these have something in common: argumentation. Mountains have been moved by masters of this craft. Just think of what such people as Martin Luther King, Jr., Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln achieved with the power of their words. There is, as Horace says, harmony in discord. We will explore that harmony and why Fredrick Douglass said there can be no progress without struggle. In this class, we will examine argument strategies and structures, interrogate assumptions, explore moral arguments with complex empirical questions, and analyze a variety of texts—popular culture, websites, advertisements, etc. Be prepared to work with a variety of evidence and opinions, cultures, counterclaims, evidentiary quality, and more, as we study and practice the art of argumentation. (Pre-requisite: ENGL210 for English majors or ENGL110 for non-English majors)
