ENG 1101CO MODEL COURSE

ENG 1101CO MODEL COURSE

This is a model course for ENG 1101CO.

ENG3401 OL 14, Law through Literature Fall 2020

ENG3401 OL 14, Law through Literature Fall 2020

An exploration of concepts of justice, higher law, customary law and written law expressed through works of fiction and non-fiction. The course seeks to enhance the student’s sensitivity to issues of ethics, gender bias and class consciousness as they affect the administration of justice. Readings improve communication skills and strengthen legal skills of identifying, articulating and locating problems in the context of underlying legal issues. Written assignments emphasize expository writing skills.

English 3402: The Graphic Novel

English 3402: The Graphic Novel

This course is designed to introduce students to the genre of graphic novels. Required readings represent both Eastern and Western comics traditions, and range in publication dates from around 1930 through the 21st century. Looking at these primary texts alongside an important critical work (Understanding Comics), students will learn to identify the key components of graphic narrativeā€”including technical aspects of visual storytelling as well as more traditional elements of prose narrativeā€”and how they work together to form a graphic narrative. Students will also be asked to identify the major themes addressed by the genre over time, and to evaluate the ways in which those themes, and the ways they are addressed, have changed.
