ENG1121 English Composition 2, SP2022 D493

An advanced course in expository essay writing that requires a library paper. Further development of research and documentation skills (MLA style). Assigned literary and expository readings. This is a course using the Core Books at CUNY and First Year Writing curricula. (We’re reading a lot, but you don’t have to buy a textbook for this class, because all our texts are online! Woot!) Together, we will explore and write within new genres, conduct research, and reflect on our writing practices. By the end of this semester, you’ll be able to analyze and participate in genres inside and outside of higher education. The aim is to build skills that will be useful in future coursework, the workplace, and in your personal lives. In other words, this course isn’t self-contained—we’re aiming to give you a toolbox of skills that you can apply to other classes and situations.

AFR1130/OL21AfricanaFolklore, FALL 2021

In this course we explore African and African-derived folk traditions and examine how they have been transmitted from Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean. We will see how Africans and people of African descent have created and transformed their various oral, customary and material lore, including folk-tales, folk-art, music and dance, into mechanisms for cultural and physical survival. We will compare and contrast some African folktales with related stories from the Caribbean, North and South America. We will also explore the traditions expressed in music, food, celebrations and other expressions of folk culture.
