ENG 2400 Films from Literature, Fall 2020

ENG 2400 Films from Literature, Fall 2020

ENG 2400 is a course that allows students to examine the relationship between films and their literary sources. Through online classroom discussion and out-of-class assignments, students will analyze classic and contemporary literary texts and their cinematic versions. Students will examine the relationship between film and literature, with specific focus on the techniques used in fiction, drama, and film and central concepts such as identity, the quest, and homesickness. Students will focus on the similarities and differences of literary works adapted into films.

ENG 1101 D335 Fall 2018

ENG 1101 D335 Fall 2018

Reading and Writing About New York City This is a writing intensive course designed to strengthen your ability to read critically, and write effectively. Over the course of this term we will study numerous essays, stories, poems, and films related to the history of New York City. Studying these works will help you to develop your own ideas and improve your writing skills. You will write several short essays, and one longer research essay. These projects will help you to develop research writing skills such as building an argument, and mastering the mechanics of quoting, citing, and documenting sources. The main readings from the course will come from The Place Where We Dwell, an excellent anthology with writings about the city of New York from a diverse range of writers in many different genres and disciplines. These readings will be supplemented with film clips, websites, and handouts. It is my hope that this class will help you to develop valuable skills in written communication and research methodology, while also giving you a greater appreciation for the rich history and culture of the city around you.
