Destination--moon. In this section of English 110 we will read two classic novels about the moon: H.G. Wells's The First Men In The Moon and Robert A. Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress. We'll look at some background stories, such as the Great Moon Hoax of 1835 and Jules Verne's From the Earth To the Moon of 1865. We'll consider some ways that the moon has been represented in literature, films and popular music. This course aims to develop existing skills of analytical reading and effective writing.

ENGL 110-C03 Critical Reading & Writing II: Apocalyptic Literature
ENGL 110-C04 (for Campion students)
Dr. Sabujkoli Bandopadhyay    CRN 31243 (C03); 31244 (C04)  MWF 1030-1120  

The class focuses on apocalyptic literature. The word “apocalypse” is often taken to mean “the end of all things,” but its origins lie in a Greek word that means “to reveal” or “to unveil.” Hence, we have the Biblical Book of Revelation. Secular versions of the Apocalypse also exist: post-World War I, post-nuclear, post-plague, and post-zombie. For thousands of years, writers and creative artists have used the conventions of this genre, depicting “the end of all things” to unveil or reveal the truth about how things are now for a variety of audiences and occasions. This class will therefore focus on encouraging students to think critically about such categories as genre, audience, authorship, tradition, and scholarly debate through a study of apocalyptic texts.

Alex MacDonald CRN 31251    TR 1600-1715

The anthology of poetry, prose and drama will provide historical background and a selection of works from each period. The approaches will include close reading of some important and representative works and attention to literary, historical and cultural contexts.

ENGL 251-C01 Expository Persuasive Writing       
Susan Bauman   CRN 31254 MWF 1330-1420

This course is intended to help students read and write more effectively by improving their skills in analysis and composition. All good writing shares qualities such as unity, coherence, precision, clarity, interest, logic and originality. Students in this class try their hands at different kinds of writing, and study and discuss others’ essays as well as their own to improve their writing skills. Practicing these skills by reading the writing of accomplished essayists and by writing a variety of assignments and essays enables students to articulate their views on any kind of issue, subject or text with greater confidence. Throughout the course, students will examine – and gain experience with – three types of communication: personal, persuasive and expository. In addition, they will also focus on writing as a process including prewriting, drafting and revision, so that they can learn how to both inform and persuade their readers successfully. Along with examples of expository essays, the material studied will include both rhetorical strategies and practical composition advice.

Jan Purnis         CRN 31258  TR  1300-1415
We will study 6 of Shakespeare’s plays, considering them in light of their social, political, and theatrical contexts. We will explore the importance of the body, both literal and figurative, in Shakespeare’s representations of gender, class, and ethnicity. We will also discuss the generic conventions of comedy, romance, and tragicomedy; Renaissance stage practices and metatheatrical moments in the plays when Shakespeare draws explicit attention to theatrical performance and audience reception; and the significance of linguistic patterns to constructions of character and expressions of emotional experience. We will view short clips of productions of each play, discussing the significance of production choices. Plays studied could include The Taming of the Shrew, The Merchant of Venice, and The Winter’s Tale, for example.
