English 2291-U.S. Literature: 1865-Present
TR 9:45-11:05 in Delaware
Spring Semester 2014, 3 credits
“America the Beautiful” may be our official dream vision of America, but what’s our nightmare? How does U.S. literature come to terms with that distorted mirror-America the freakish, weird, criminal, or downright mutant? Modern writers have displayed a strange obsession with the grotesque, and this class will explore that preoccupation by examining U.S. literature between 1865 and the present through the figure of the “freak” or outcast. We will learn how discourses of abnormality dating from the late-19th century, such as racial “science,” criminology, and social Darwinism, impacted and continue to impact U.S. literature. Our readings will cover a spectrum of poetry, drama, fiction, and film, including works by Octavia Butler, Emily Dickinson, William Faulkner, Andre Lorde, and Tennessee Williams.
Class requirements: One 3-4 page analytic paper, creative writing and performance, midterm, and final exam.
ENG 4581 Special Topics in U. S. Ethnic Literatures
Sara Crosby, TR 1:30-2:50, 3 credits
Outlaws and outcasts, rebels and revolutionaries, anarchists and assassins. The writers you’re going to meet in this class hail from all sorts of ethnic backgrounds (Native, African, Jewish, Hispanic, Asian, Arab) and occupy multiple job descriptions (from stand-up comic to anarchist nanny). But they all attacked authority head-on, using their wits and often their guns and knives. American history is not always written by the so-called “victors.” Sometimes the rebels have a powerful say, and in this class we’re going to uncover their stories and look at American literature through the bright eyes of radical women. This course fulfills the education major’s minority literature requirement, as well as an upper-level elective requirement for the English major.
Sociology 3467: Sociology of Religion
Spring Semester 2014
Instructor: Conrad Robinson
Time: M&W 11:15 a.m.-12:35 p.m.
Location: Delaware Partnership Campus, CSCC Delaware
For sociologists of religion, the United States is fascinating country to study for two reasons: (1) the United States is probably the most religiously diverse country in the world and (2) when compared to other rich, industrialized countries the United States is a profoundly religious society.
The goal of this course is for students to develop a sociological perspective on religion via a study of religions in the U.S. We will not be concerned with identifying the 'truth' or 'falsity' of specific religions or of religion in general. What we will be concerned with is gaining an understanding of how American society has shaped--and continues to shape--the various religions within the U.S. and how various religions in turn have shaped and continue to influence the U.S. today.
Students will be graded on class participation and writing papers. There will be no exams. This class is a General Education class (GE) in Social Diversity in the U.S. No previous Sociology classes are required.
