This is a Composition I course.

The Place Where We Dwell: Reading and Writing About NYC

The Place Where We Dwell: Reading and Writing About NYC

The essays collected in your anthology are focused on New York City and urban issues. Reflecting on your own urban experiences alongside these essays will help you become an active participant in discussions about communities, public space, urban art forms, education, homelessness, crime, gentrification, the environment, and other topics of debate. Thinking critically about cities will also help you learn to use writing as a technology for managing competing ideas and clarifying and defending your own.

ENG1151, Journalism

ENG1151, Journalism

This course has two main components: first, a history of journalism and, second, experience creating a wide range of journalistic pieces. Students will gain an understanding of the issues surrounding journalism in the United States as they have developed over the past two centuries, and will apply what they have learned in their writing tasks.

ENG3403FitzgeraldSpring2020

ENG3403FitzgeraldSpring2020

One of America’s most interesting and versatile of writers is F. Scott Fitzgerald. Over the course of a highly productive career, Fitzgerald rode to fame on four novels and almost 160 stories published in the leading magazines of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Today, he is primarily remembered for his recounting of the rollicking, jazz-infused “Roaring Twenties” in his literary classic The Great Gatsby, published in 1925. As this course will demonstrate, Fitzgerald should be remembered for much more of his work, including his short stories, later novels, work in Hollywood, and the many films made of his work and life.
