This course will cover the modern European novel through the thematic rubric of "love and lies." The latter theme affords the opportunity to consider fiction not only as a medium of the literary genre of the novel but also as a discourse of self-expression, self-creation, and in the cases of some our lying protagonists, self-destruction. Students will focus on characters' constructions of "truth" and "lies" as these concepts are informed by characters' emotional positions.

The telling of tales is central to community interaction; story has always been used as a way, direct and indirect, of making culturally specific meaning out of experience. Students will read archival and contemporary material and then select traditional and modern stories resonant of their private experience to generate original work.

3
ENG442

American Multicultural Literature

Students explore the issues, debates, and politics of American literary multiculturalism; consider texts from non-European imaginative traditions (Native American, African-American, and Chicano/a) that challenge not only the canon of American literature but also notions of the American and the literary; and devise strategies for incorporating such texts in courses on American multicultural literature.

3
ENG443

Writers examined include: Anne Carson, Mark Doty, Kathleen Hill, and Virginia Woolf.

3
ENG447

Contemporary Environmental Fiction

A study of environmental fiction ranging from Jack London’s The Call of the Wild to Margaret Atwood’s Surfacing and Jane Smiley’s A Thousand Acres, this course attends in specific to the representation of nature and environment in 20th-Century novels and other cultural texts (e.g., Bambi or The Emerald Forest). Students will consider how such representations interrogate, critique, or reinforce contemporary constructions of the environment.

Prerequisite(s): 200-level English course or permission of department chairperson.
