How did people read books through time? How did writing shape identity? How are communities formed? In the age of readily accessible information, it is often hard to imagine times when writing was not available to all and information was not just a click away. In this course, we will explore the text of the three great religions of the book: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Although these are all religions where texts have a central place, it is only recently that members of these religious communities have gained direct access to their own sacred writings. As such, we will examine the place of writing in these three communities, looking at how access to writing changed the nature of these three faiths. Students must enroll in both the lecture and one discussion section.

Daisy Miller is a turn-of-the-century "American girl" who bucks against the expectations and conventions of old Europe's strict social society. In Goodbye Columbus, our young hero confronts class differences in the form of privileged Brenda Patimkin, femme fatale of the Green Lane Country Club. And, as we all know, Romeo and Juliet's compulsive "star-crossed" love results in nothing less than the destruction of the self. By combining these readings with Angela Carter's eerie tales in The Bloody Chamber and the poetry of William Wordsworth, we will ask the question, "How does "leaving home" affect and change our sense of who we are?" Along with the protagonists of all our readings, we will evaluate their identities using various perspectives such as looking at class, gender, and race. The essays you compose will help you to start understanding the myriad ways an identity can be determined. This course, therefore, will ask you to think hard not only about the improvement of your writing, but about the development of the self.

This course seeks to explore how the use of language in various poems, novels, and memoirs establishes a literary, personal mythology for the text's author or protagonist. Potential areas of study may include John Berger's discussion of the gaze in Ways of Seeing; the role of painting in Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse; the process of identity formation in James McBride's The Color of Water; the importance of myth in Yeats' poems Easter, 1916, Leda and the Swan, The Second Coming, and Sailing to Byzantium; and the construction of personal history in Sherman Alexie's short story, What You Pawn I Will Redeem. In addition to other assignments, students will write an essay comparing and contrasting two paintings and a personal narrative.

We will examine the ways printed texts shape our perceptions of the world and how print and media shape our perceptions of ourselves. Moreover, by making us more aware of the often taken-for-granted aspects of print by making the invisible visible and forcing us to reconsider our assumptions about texts and reading, this course will allow us to critically examine how the form of writing determines its content. We will read a variety of works from various historical periods. By examining the roles print has played in the past, we will be better prepared to critically consider the challenges posed by the media to the ideas about reading, writing and identity. By the end of the course, you will produce several pieces of polished writing that demonstrate your ability to understand and engage in critical analysis of printed and electronic texts, to conduct library and Web-based research, and to support your original arguments with evidence gathered from multiple sources, primary and secondary. The course will include a trip to Clements Library.

This course will examine four novels-to-film depicting human struggles at the edges of sanity. These novels-to-film raise useful questions about our own identities and the struggle to find our way in this world. Our discussions will not focus on mental illness, per se, but will critically analyze and examine these stories and what their transition from written to visual form reveals about them. Texts may include One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey; The Hours by Michael Cunningham; Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk; Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson; Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen; The Sweet Hereafter by Russell Banks; and Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson. This class is designed to improve your ability to write clear, organized, and cohesive essays to improve your skills as both interpreters and communicators of ideas and information. This course will help you develop as critical readers, thinkers and writers able to communicate in a scholarly, academic community.

The critic, James Wood, has written that in the nineteenth century, as religious skepticism grew, "fiction became an almost religious activity." This course will test Wood's argument and examine the extent to which literature can secure a kind of faith in a world dubious of the supernatural. In the process, we will also explore how our own identities are shaped by this struggle between religious and aesthetic belief. Even if we do not subscribe to a particular organized religion, our sense of self is often affected by our sense of the spiritual, as is demonstrated in the world's best literature. For this course, we will read two novels from the nineteenth century, Melville's Moby Dick and Turgenev's Fathers and Sons, as well as two novels from the twentieth century, Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse and Graham Greene's The End of the Affair.

As part of your research, you'll compare your "personal" identities with your "social" identities by listening to different voices belonging to the various denizens of American subcultures as they discuss their issues.

What does it mean to be "insane," and why are we so uncomfortable with the concept? How are "different" thoughts and ideas often construed as the product of mental disease (and subsequently discredited)? How does mental illness set one apart from society and how does it, at the same time, seem to stem from a lack of meaningful or normal social interactions? What is the significance of these social rifts associated with insanity? Drawing mostly on fictional accounts, we will explore how "different" lifestyles, cultural groups, and ways of thinking are marginalized by being categorized as insane and how different authors use "insane" characters to facilitate their social commentary. We will use a number of texts and films featuring insane or unreliable characters and ask, among other questions, to what extent their mental illness leads us to discredit them and what it adds to or subtracts from their accounts. We will then discuss how the concept of mental illness is being used in each text by those in power as a tool to discredit those who challenge their ideals and ask whether the authors seem to be sympathetic or critical to the phenomena they describe. Readings will draw on short fiction, poetry, and novels. Such works may include William Shakespeare's King Lear, Michael Foucault's Madness and Civilization, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, and selections from author's such as Stephen King, Nikolai Gogol, William Styron, Charlotte Perkins Gillman, and Eudora Welty.

Close your eyes and imagine that you were born completely without sight. Now imagine that your sight was miraculously restored. What would you "see"? Look at your hand and wiggle your fingers. Is this what you expected your hand to look like? Would you be able to comprehend the world around you or would everything be such a confusing mass of shapes, lines, colors, textures, spaces, shadows and light that you would feel suffocated by the overwhelming complexity of it all? In this course, we will demystify the art of seeing. Learning to draw and paint requires you to look at the world more closely and to record what you see more accurately. Learning to see, not what you "think" you see, but what you actually see, is the key that can unlock the door to your inner vision. Once you can access visual phenomenon through drawing and painting you will find out how much there is to see and how beautiful things really are. One half of the course will be spent in black and white, drawing the human body, something simultaneously intimate and yet completely foreign. The second half of the course will concentrate on seeing the world in color through painting. No prior experience is necessary and everyone will benefit from their new-found "sight." This is a rigorous course with extensive assignments outside of class studio time.

This course will not meet weekly. The schedule will be given on the first day of class. The goal of this course is to help create an electronic version of the LHSP community. We'll examine what it means to be a community, while archiving its development. Learn new skills as we document the 2003-2004 year, capturing classes, events, field trips, parties, and candid residence hall experiences. Learn interviewing, photography, editing, and technical skills. The yearbook will be distributed on a CD to each LHSP student at the end of the academic year.

We think we know what a story is: it's a set of events with a beginning, middle, and end. That may or may not be true, but there's a great tradition of shuffling the sequence to fundamentally change how stories work. This class will focus on fractured and non-traditional stories, including selections from the novel Hopscotch, the graphic novel The Death of Speedy, and films like Memento, The Usual Suspects, and Rashomon. The goal is to understand alternative strategies for telling a tale, and the final product will be our OWN broken fiction involving written, digital, and real-life components. So come get confused--life's more interesting that way.
