ENG2200 E244 Fall 2017 – American Literature I

ENG2200 E244 Fall 2017 – American Literature I

American Literature I American Literature I is a survey of American Literature from the origins of the nation to 1865. In this course we will interrogate the very concept of an “American” Literature, and explore some of the theoretical and historical questions about what defines the nation, its writing and its traditions. There are many possible texts to choose from in this designated period, so our reading will necessarily be selective. Historically, we will begin with the early days of the Republic and continue through the Civil War (and beyond). In particular we will spend quite a bit of time discussing the institution of chattel slavery, the importance of slave labor in the global economic market during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the struggle over abolition that led up to the Civil War, and the importance of race in the formation of American citizenship and identity. By reading a short list of selected authors, writing about their work, and discussing this work together in class, it is my hope that you will come away from this class with a better understanding of American literature and the complex history of the nation in which this body of work was produced.

ENG 1101 D337/C337: An Introduction to College Writing, Fall 2015

ENG 1101 D337/C337: An Introduction to College Writing, Fall 2015

Engl English Composition I is a course designed to introduce you to college writing through an exploration of a wide variety of texts and writing assignments revolving around themes of identity and social justice in the United States with a focus on New York City and the rich and varied stories and perspectives of the people who have made it their home. Drawing on readings from a wide variety of genres—as well as your own experience and knowledge—we will explore current issues and debates that impact people’s lives in the city. In doing so, we will explore the concept of the “right to the city” as it relates to New York City and our own lives (and the lives of others) within it. We will also examine the role of writing, critical literacy and “the stories we tell” in shaping and understanding our identities, our world and are places within it. Through the various writing assignments you complete for this class, you will develop effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including the use of the library. College-level readings are assigned as the basis for in-class and online discussion and for essay writing. CUNY certification in reading and writing is the prerequisite for this course.
