Brazil is known internationally for its rich multi-ethnic cultural production. In this course, we will explore a few of the elements of Brazilian culture that are most evident to outsiders such as samba music, carnival, and the martial arts form, capoeira, as well as the ways these relate to issues such as working class politics, democratization, and family and sexuality. We will take both an academic and a hands-on approach to these issues. Students will analyze scholarly and other writing on the history and social meanings of different forms of cultural production, and attend a performance, film, or a workshop by Brazilian visiting artists. Short written assignments will be completed for each activity. In addition to class activities, each student will choose an element of Brazilian culture to research over the course of the term and will present the results at the end of the term, both in writing and as an individual or group performance or oral presentation.

Speaking with an admiration akin to awe, Hamlet says, "What a piece of work is a man! How infinite in faculties! In form and moving how express [precise] and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!" In Mark Twain's The Mysterious Stranger, however, when someone calls a sadistic act "bestial", Satan points out that only man takes pleasure in cruelty; no animal does. In this term we are going to examine and write about some of the qualities, admirable and frightening, that constitute human nature; our guides will be artists and thinkers who have analyzed and come to conclusions about our natures. Here are some of the topics we will address: "The Value and Limits of Being Reasonable;" "Faith and Atheism;" "Is This an Ordered, Purposeful Universe?"; "The Forces Beneath our Civilized Veneer;" "How Responsible are We?" "What is beyond Conventional Morality?". You will write a variety of papers. Some will analyze the works we have read or seen; some will analyze your own experiences; one will be an exam. The final, long paper will consist of an essay or short story which pursues in depth a facet of our study. The books and films we will read or see will be chosen from the following:

  1. Euthyphro, The Apology, Crito, Plato
  2. Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift
  3. Beyond Good and Evil, Freidrich Nietzsche
  4. Civilization and Its Discontents, Sigmund Freud
  5. The Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad
  6. Aunt Dan and Lemon, Wallace Shawn
  7. Mother Night, Kurt Vonnegut
  8. The Seventh Seal, Ingmar Bergman

Drawing on the perspectives of history and psychology, this course will explore the experiences of survivors of the Nazi Holocaust. We shall attempt to understand not only some of what survivors endured within the destruction but also in their lives since the Holocaust their lives specifically as survivors.

A special emphasis throughout will be on investigating, and developing, our capacity to listen to survivors. Because survivors use the same words we do, yet have experienced realities totally alien to most of us, we shall continually return to ways we may think we understand survivors yet not actually do so. Aware of these pitfalls, we shall practice understanding better.

The aspects of survivors' experience on which we shall especially focus include: massive psychological trauma; desolation and destruction of identity; the roles of shame, guilt, grief and rage in the aftermath; the need to "bear witness;" the impact of images of survivors in popular culture; the role of Holocaust memorials, museums, and testimony projects; survivors' experiences re-creating family, community, and faith. While the primary emphasis will be on survivors, there will also be classes devoted to perpetrators, bystanders, and resisters during the Holocaust.

Writing assignments for this seminar will include both journal writing and interpretive essays. Theatre and visual art will also play a role. On occasion, we will be joined by survivors and thus have the chance to talk with them directly. There will be a good many evening films as well, so no student should register for this seminar who would not be free to view films on Monday evening between 7:00 and 9:30 p.m.

Reading will include selections from Martin Gilbert, The Holocaust; Elie Wiesel, Night; Primo Levi's Survival in Auschwitz and The Drowned and the Saved; Charlotte Delbo, None of Us Will Return; Jean Amery, At the Mind's Limits; Isabella Leitner, Fragments of Isabella; Christopher Browning, Ordinary Men; Art Spiegelman, Maus; and a number of excerpts from survivors' audio and video testimony.

An introduction to Drama study at the Residential College through the theatre offerings in and around Ann Arbor in Winter Term 2003. The class will study beforehand select plays, attend performances of these plays (on an average of one every two weeks), and through discussion and writing substantially critique the productions seen. Visits from actors, directors, designers, and dramaturges will also be a regular feature of the class. Writing assignments will range from traditional academic background research and criticism of the texts; to interviews with the local threatre artists involved; to report on our own exploratory scenework; to detailed critiques of the productions focusing on the act of interpretation, the complex process of moving a play "from page to stage". Centerpiece of the semester will be the residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company under the sponsorship of the University Musical Society. The RSC will be presenting the tragedy Coriolanus and the comedy Merry Wives of Windsor as well as an original stage adaptation of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children (this major novel will therefore also be part of the course). Other playgoing will be selected from the offerings of :

  1. the Department of Theatre and Drama and the School of Music's Opera and Musical Theatre programs;
  2. the local Equity house, The Performance Network;
  3. the RC Drama Concentration and various student groups (RC Players, Basement Arts, etc.);
  4. the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, the Theatre Dept. of Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, etc.

      Through individual playgoing and reporting on these and other theatrical offerings, which will supplement the central, class-wide assignments, it is hoped that we will be able to achieve an overview of the scope and achievements of our local theatre community.

      The feverish pulse, exotic passion and heightened sensibility, associated with certain infectious diseases, have held a wide-spread fascination for Western literature. In this seminar we will study the contextual role and the cultural effect of diseases like TB, Cholera, Plague, Ebola, AIDS, and others. We will read a number of representative works of fiction and drama by Pratolini, Gide, Camus, Dumas, Mann, Epson and supplement our reading with Opera, film and recent documentaries. Participants will be asked to contribute to the breadth and scope of the seminar by preparing one course-related presentation, geared to their own interest or vocational goal. These projects may range from the artistic to the clinical and will be presented in conference style toward the end of the term. Frequent shorter writing assignments on either text related or creative topics will form the basis of class discussions.

      Intensive German II covers second-year German in one term. The goals of the course include review and expansion of the grammar and vocabulary presented in Core 191 and further development of student's reading, writing, and speaking skills. As in the other RC German courses, all instruction is conducted in German. Classroom instruction includes discussions, impromptu speaking exercises, performance of skits, numerous writing assignments, and listening and reading exercises. Reading materials include short prose, fairy tales, poetry, and magazine and newspaper articles. A primary objective which RCCORE 291 students strive to meet is "passing proficiency". Achieving this goal gives students a sense of pride and accomplishment. The proficiency exam serves as a qualifying exam for the next required course in the sequence, RCCORE 321 (German Readings).

Readings revolve around the intersections of gender politics, insurrection, and rhetoric. In addition, students will work with earlier material remains, such as inscriptions and documentary papyri. The course will conclude with literature from Medieval Latin. Skills will be enhanced through writing, hearing, and speaking the language; content and format alike will encourage students to consider ways in which Latin continues to be very much a part of our world today.

      The goal of this course is to bring students to the level of Proficiency, as defined in the brochure "The French Program at the Residential College," in the four linguistic skills. Students who take 310 typically have not reached this level in two or more skills, but do not need the Intensive course 290 to do so. "Accelerated Review-310" is taught in a semi-tutorial mode with hours arranged to meet the particular needs of the students.

      In this course, emphasis is placed on correctness and fluidity of expression in speaking and in writing. Speaking skills are developed though weekly conversation sessions on current topics; personalized pronunciation diagnoses are administered and exercises prescribed. Writing skills are refined through a review of deficient grammar points and composition assignments which give students the opportunity to improve the accuracy and expressiveness of their style.

      In addition, exposure to primary source materials (current magazines or newspapers) and to texts of cultural and literary value develop reading ability and vocabulary. Listening skills are trained in informal conversational exchanges and in lectures with note-taking in French.

      This course is designed for students with a fairly extensive background in Spanish who have already taken the equivalent of three/four semesters of language but still need further reinforcement in two or more linguistic areas and are too advanced for second year intensive. The main focus of this class is the discussion of primary source materials of a literary, cultural and political nature pertaining to the Spanish-speaking world, as well as the review of advanced grammar. Students work towards proficiency in listening and reading comprehension, language structure, and composition.

      Cuisine has long been celebrated and enjoyed as an important aspect of French culture. How are French attitudes towards food and cooking different from our own? How are the French protecting this part of their culture?

      We will also look into nutrition and health issues. Do the French have different ideas about what foods are considered "healthy"? What are their concerns about the safety of what they eat? Given the cultural and economic importance of wine, what are their attitudes toward alcohol and alcohol abuse?

      Through readings from a variety of sources, we will attempt to answer these and other questions. Readings will include selections from literary texts by authors such as Daninos, Zola, Baudelaire, Proust, and Peter Mayle among others. The majority of readings will be current news articles. All readings, discussions and written work will be in French. Students will be responsible for a small research project which will be presented to the class. Students will also prepare at least one meal.

      Far from being a doctrine, Existentialism is fundamentally a philosophical tendency. Born of a reaction against Hegelian rationalism, the different existentialist tendencies come together in the rehabilitation of freedom, subjectivity and individual existence. In this course we will attempt, through our readings, to discern the characteristics of various existentialist concepts. After a brief survey of the precursors and the "founders" of existentialism, we will focus on two members of what has been called the Philosophical School of Paris, namely Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, as well as on Albert Camus. Our first readings by Jean-Paul Sartre will allow us to familiarize ourselves with the main existentialist themes. The study of Albert Camus' conception of the human condition and the absurd will offer us a diametrically opposed perspective to Sartre's systematic approach, and de Beauvoir's critique of Sartre's conception will shed new light on the concepts of freedom and responsibility. Students will be asked to write essays on the readings and to participate actively in class discussions. Assigned works: Jean-Paul Sartre: L'Existentialisme est un humanisme, La Nausée (excerpts), Les Mouches, Le Mur; Albert Camus:Le Mythe de Sisyphe (excerpts), Caligula, L'Etranger; Simone de Beauvoir:Les Bouches inutiles, Tous les hommes sont mortels; Film: Luis Puenzo:La Peste; Audio-visual materials:Sartre par lui-même, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus: A Self-Portrait.

      During this seminar we will ask, how did the German Romantics interpret the human experience? We will seek answers by sampling some of their theoretical writings as well as their artistic expressions in poetry, drama, song cycles, and paintings. At the same time we will reinforce our ability to read, write, and speak German. Students will be asked to create their own "Romantic Journal" in which they will record their responses, essays, notes, commentary, and sketches. The seminar meets three times a week as a group, but students are also expected to regularly work on an individual tutorial basis with the instructor throughout the term.

      In this course, students will read several modern German plays and will become familiar with the 20th century German theater that grew out of the Cabaret tradition. In addition to reading 6-7 plays, students will read several of Brecht's writing about epic theater, do scene work using Brecht's "Lehrstueck" model, and will ultimately participate as technical crew and actors in a multi-media play production of RC "Deutsches Theater" in March/April. In addition to participating in all rehearsals and the final performances, students will be required to give one oral "Referat" on a topic relevant to course readings and to keep a course portfolio containing reflections on readings and scene work, original sketches, and materials collected for possible inclusion in the production. Students may travel at their own expense with the course instructor to Munich over Spring Break to see theater productions. RC German readings is a prerequisite for this course, but some students who have not had German Readings may be eligible to participate with permission of the instructor. Students who have participated in RC "Deutsches Theater" in the past are welcome to enroll in the course again.

      El hecho de que los gitanos hayan constituído por largo tiempo la "minoría étnica" en España no ha interferido con la prevalente noción de una identidad española homogénea. Sin embargo, como parte de un fenómeno de inmigración común en toda Europa, España ha experimentado un flujo creciente desde África y Latinoamérica en años recientes que desafía esta noción de homogeneidad cultural y confronta al país con su propia resistencia a la diferencia. Este curso se enfocará en el estudio de las fracturas y transformaciones que estos grupos marginales de antiguo y reciente asentamiento están provocando en la sociedad española contemporánea. El curso abordará la conflictiva historia e identidad cultural de los gitanos en España usándolas como paradigma para entender las manifestaciones actuales de xenofobia hacia los inmigrantes, así como las tensiones y violencia que han emergido. Indagaremos también la paradójica apropiación de sus manifestaciones artísticas tales como el uso de la música y el baile flamencos como iconos de la cultura española al tiempo que persisten políticas legales de segregación espacial y de confinamiento urbanos. Paralelamente, a medida que grupos inmigrantes no-blancos llegan a las fronteras legal o ilegalmente, el conflicto social se formula tanto en leyes de inmigración y medidas políticas concretas como en actitudes colectivas más elusivas y contradictorias. ¿Cuáles son los resultados de esos procesos de inmigración y desplazamiento cultural? ¿Cómo se integran o se segregan legal, cultural y espacialmente? ¿Qué culturas de ghetto se promueven y se subvierten? ¿Son permeables las fronteras? Documentales de RTVE (Radio Televisión Española) sobre inmigración y una serie de films recientes de Documentales y una serie de films recientes de Tony Gatlif, Imanol Uribe e Iciar Bollaín complementarán los materiales de lectura.

      From Diaspora to Displacement: Gypsies, African and Latin American Immigrants in Contemporary Spain

      The fact that gypsies have long constituted the "ethnic minority" in Spain has not interfered with the prevailing notion of a homogeneous Spanish identity. As part of a common trend in Europe, however, Spain has experienced an increasing immigration influx both from Africa and Latin America in recent years that challenges such a notion and confronts the country with its own resistance to difference. This course will focus on the study of the history and cultural identity of gypsies within Spanish society in the last century until present day, and will use this as a paradigm to understand current manifestations of xenophobia towards immigrants, as well as the tensions and violence that have emerged. We will also inquire into the paradoxical appropriation of their artistic manifestations such as flamenco music and dance that have become icons of Spanish culture while legal policies of spatial segregation and confinement still persist. As new non-white groups reach the border now, we will also analyze how social conflict is being shaped into law as well as into more elusive and contradictory collective attitudes. What are the results of these processes of immigration and cultural displacement? How are they integrated or segregated legally, culturally, spatially? Documentaries produced by RTVE (Radio Televisión Española) on immigration and a series of recent films by Tony Gatlif, Imanol Uribe and Iciar Bollain will complement the readings.

      El objetivo de esta clase será proporcionar una visión global del bilingüismo, una visión que no se limita al desarrollo de competencia lingüística, sino una perspectiva en la que se presenta el bilingüismo como un medio en la creación de una cultura lingüística. Los temas iniciales explorarán los aspectos lingüísticos del bilingüismo, tal como tipos de hablantes bilingües, patrones de adquisión de una lengua en un contexto bilingüe, rasgos del habla, entre otros. A continuación, se examinará el valor sociocultural asociado con el bilingüismo. ¿Qué relevancia tiene la educación bilingüe en nuestra sociedad? ¿Cuáles son los mitos y creencias asociados con la educación bilingüe? ¿Cómo afectanestas creencias la relación entre lengua mayoritaria e identidad nacional? ¿Cómo afectan las políticas lingüísticas? ¿Cómo afectan la educación de los estudiantes de minorías lingüísticas? ¿Cómo afectan el desarrollo de una identidad cultural lingüística? Leeremos artículos sobre la lingüística y cuentos de personas bilingües hablando de sus experiencias.

      Bilingualism: Linguistic competence vs. Linguistic Culture

      The aim of this course is to provide a global understanding of bilingualism, one that is not limited to the acquisition of linguistic competence, but rather a view that recognizes bilingualism as a means for the development of linguistic culture. Initial exploration into the topic will focus on linguistic aspects of bilingualism, such as bilingual types, patterns of language acquisition, features of bilingual speech, among others. Afterwards, we will examine the sociocultural value associated to bilingualism. What is the relevance of bilingual education in our society? What myths and beliefs are associated with bilingual education? How do these beliefs reflect the relationship between the majority language and national identity? How do they affect language policy? How do they affect the education of linguistic-minority students? How do they affect the development of a linguistic cultural identity? We will be reading articles from linguistics as well as short stories and poems by bilingual speakers reflecting on their personal experiences.

      Las ciudades son manifestaciones físicas de procesos sociales, económicos y políticos, delimitados en un tiempo y un espacio que comparten con los procesos biológicos del ambiente. Esta compleja interacción se traduce en mecanismos de adaptación mutua y permanente. Las ciudades no son estáticas, sino dinámicas y están continuamente sufriendo cambios. Reconocer este aspecto vivo de las ciudades permite situarlas en contexto, e identificar más claramente los factores que son importantes en su forma, función, e identidad, y cómo afectan la calidad de vida de sus habitantes.

      En este marco, exploraremos algunos de los aspectos importantes en la formación de ciudades latinoamericanas, por ejemplo, los procesos históricos y culturales, la política y el poder, las políticas urbanas y de desarrollo económico y social, y el rol de los espacios y recursos públicos. Se hará énfasis en la interacción de estos factores y en su impacto sobre la forma urbana, la integración social y económica, y la calidad ambiental. Las discusiones se centrarán en la comparación con ciudades norteamericanas.

      Latin-American Cities

      Cities are physical manifestations of social, economic, and political processes, set in specific temporal and spatial frameworks that are shared with the biological processes of the environment. This complex interaction translates into mutual and permanent mechanisms of adaptation. Cities are not static, but dynamic, and are continuously going through change. To recognize this living aspect of cities allows us to set them in context, and more clearly identify the important factors that shape their form, function and identity, and how these in turn affect the quality of life of their inhabitants.

      Within this framework, we will explore some of the important aspects in the formation of Latin-American cities, e.g. historical and cultural processes, politics and power, urban policies and economic and social development policies, the role of public spaces and resources. The interaction of these factors will be emphasized, and the impact on urban form, social and economic integration, and environmental quality. Discussions will focus on comparisons with North American cities.

      La cultura latinoamericana es el resultado del encuentro de varias culturas; la indígena, la africana, la española y otras. En el intentar explicar esa realidad híbrida/mestiza el antropólogo cubano Fernando Ortíz teorizó sobre el concepto de transculturación como contrapunto al de aculturación para describir la cultura cubana. Desde entonces, el término y la teoría se han utilizado para describir a casi todos los aspectos culturales de la América Latina. En este curso, aplicaremos la teoría de transculturación a ensayos, cuentos y poesía para analizar y entender como algunos autores latinoamericanos intentan representar la condición mestiza. Analizaremos aspectos de raza, idioma y geografía dentro del contexto cultural mestizo. Al mismo tiempo, analizaremos como la teoría de transculturación contribuye al concepto de "lo americano." A fines del curso, intentaremos aplicar lo que hemos estudiado sobre la transculturación y la literatura latinoamericana a la literatura latina de los Estados Unidos para explorar la validez de esta teoría como marco para examinar la literatura latina estadounidense.

      Tranculturation, mestizaje and Latin American Literature:

      Latin American culture is the result of the encounter of various cultures; the Indigenous, the African, the Spanish, and others. In attempting to explain this hybrid/mestizo reality the Cuban anthropologist, Fernando Ortíz, theorized over the concept of transculturation as a counterpoint to that of acculturation in order to describe Cuban culture. Since then, the term and theory have been used to describe virtually all aspects of Latin American culture. In this course, we will apply the theory of transculturation to essays, short stories, and poetry in order to analyze and understand how some Latin American authors attempt to portray the mestizo condition. We will analyze aspects of race, language, and geography within the mestizo cultural context. At the same time, we will analyze how the theory of transculturation contributes to the concept of "lo americano." At the end of the course, we will attempt to apply what we have studied in regards to transculturation and Latin American literature to Latino literature of the United States in order to explore the validity of this theory as a framework for examining U.S. Latino literature.

      En este curso leeremos textos que representan una variedad de expresión creativa, cultural, y social de las poblaciones indígenas de la región andina, enfocando la problemática indígena que a través de ella se manfiesta. Comenzaremos leyendo textos breves de José María Arguedas y César Vallejo. A través de estos autores podremos reconocer de inicio el caracter de la problemática indígena de esta región. Posteriormente leeremos literatura indígena pre-colombina que ha sido transcrita, traducida al castellano e impresa, lo cual nos permitirá reconocer la semejanza o diferencia entre los géneros literarios que surgen de la tradición oral indígena y aquellos que conocemos de la tradición occidental, tales como el cuento, la zarzuela, y la poesía. Después de reconocer este legado desde ya traducido al castellano, por tanto mediatizado, leeremos textos de la tradición oral transmitida como conocimiento local: cuentos y adivinanzas, fábulas y mitos de diversas regiones de los Andes cuya impresión y difusión contemporánea revelan la persistencia y vigencia de esta tradición. Seguiremos nuestro cuestionamiento leyendo pasajes de varios textos cuyo carácter etnográfico nos desplaza de los géneros literarios hacia la narración de historias personales. La transcripción y traducción de estos textos marca un cambio en la manera en que la literatura indígena continua emergiendo desde la tensión social que incialmente reconocemos a través de Arguedas y Vallejo y que nos permite adentrarnos en la realidad del indígena andino desde su propio testimonio. Finalmente leeremos artículos de periódico, ensayos, y otras pronunciaciones públicas escritas por los intelectuales indígenas de hoy cuyas preocupaciones proyectan la realidad indígena desde el punto de vista de los movimientos indígenas que recién empiezan la labor de articular sus intereses comunitarios a partir de su autónoma y decidida participación social.

      Indigenous Literature: Oral Tradition and Indigenous Movements

      In this course we will read texts which represent a variety of creative, cultural, and social expression emerging from the indigenous populations of the Andean region focusing our attention on the indigenous problematic which becomes evident through these texts. We will begin by reading brief texts written by Jose Maria Arguedas and Cesar Vallejo. Through these authors we will be able to, from the outset, recognize the particularities of the indigenous problematic of this region. We will read Pre-Columbian indigenous literature which has been transcribed, translated into Spanish, and published. This reading will enable us to recognize similarities and differences between literary genres which emerge from an indigenous oral tradition and those which emerge from a Western literary tradition such as the short story, zarzuela, and poetry. After reckoning with this literary legacy, already translated into Spanish and therefore mediated, we will read texts from the oral tradition which are transmitted as local knowledge: stories and adivinanzas, fables and myths from diverse regions in the Andes whose contemporary published status reveal the persistence and importance of this tradition. We will puruse our questioning further by reading various texts whose ethnographic quality displaces our focus, from literary genres toward the narration of personal histories. The transcription and translation of these texts marks a change in the way in which indigenous literature continues to emerge from the social tension which Vallejo and Arguedas' texts signal. These texts will permit us to enter into the indigenous Andean reality from the point of view of indigenous testimony. Finally, we will read newspaper articles, essays, and other public pronnouncements written by current indigenous intellectuals whose concerns project indigenous reality from the point of view of the indigenous movements which have just begun the labor of articulating their communal interests through their autonomous and determined participation in Andean society at large.

      As incubators for new ideas and sites of dynamic contradiction, cities have long inspired novelists, filmmakers and artists. In this seminar, Berlin will serve as the case study to examine the relationship between cities as physical places and as imagined, discursive spaces. Berlin provides an historically and culturally rich object of study; over the course of one century, it was the capital of the German empire, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the GDR, and now reunited Germany. In novels, paintings and films, Berlin has been depicted in metaphoric terms: as symphony, machine, seductress, maze, moral parable, haunted city, etc. By studying the city in its various guises, we recognize a variant of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle: that when we observe and represent the city, we do not see the city itself, but rather, the city exposed to our particular method of questioning. These questions are determined by the observer's historical and subjective position and by the particular parameters of genre and medium.

      The goal of the course is for students to generate their own spatio-narrative video mappings of the city that incorporate secondary readings and first-hand experiences. Through in-class workshops organized in conjunction with the Media Union, students will be trained in video production and editing. Over the Spring Break, students have the option of traveling to Berlin as a group to record their engagement with the city. Integrating original video and audio footage and text, as well as excerpts from prior readings, they will use digital video to document the relationship between the city as abstraction, preconceived image and acquired knowledge and the city as actual, physical place. For those unable to travel overseas, Ann Arbor, Detroit, or Chicago can serve as sites for video production and comparative analysis.

      Talking, like walking, is a natural biological function for humans. Pretty much everybody walks and talks, we learn it automatically, and we do it so well that we rarely even think about it. Writing, by contrast, is unnatural for humans - as unnatural as driving a car or playing a guitar,a matter of technology and art rather than nature and biology - a skill that almost everybody can learn, though not everybody does. Even when one can write, however, it is still the case that some do it better than others, and pretty much everybody is aware of their shortcomings as writers.

      In any art, there is a medium, and the medium of writing is language. In our culture, that language is English, and the U.S. educational system teaches its students almost nothing about the English language, beyond a vague anxiety that somebody knows more than you do about what's "correct". Consequently, Americans are largely innocent of knowledge about the grammar of English, and therefore have a much harder time writing than they ought to, like a painter who has never heard of colors or shapes.

      This course, which is open to non-R.C. students and satisfies the LS&A's Junior/Senior Writing Requirement, is designed to alleviate this situation. We will study the medium of writing - English syntax with particular attention to the construction of effective phrases, sentences, and paragraphs, and their assembly into coherent and interesting writing.

      For that purpose we will analyze topics like relative clauses, subject and object complements, modal auxiliaries, negation, adverbial clauses, verb inversions, conjunction reduction, transitivity, prepositional phrases and government, pronominal coreference and deletion, and subject-verb agreement, among others. The ultimate goal of the course is to enable the habit of conscious attention to one's use of language; thus, in every piece of writing submitted students will be expected to be able to justify their use of any word or construction they use, listing the alternatives considered and the reasons for their rejection.

      Naturally, this takes practice. There will be weekly writing, two papers with revisions, and a final term paper, with an initial draft and revision. The text is McCawley's The Syntactic Phenomena of English (2nd edition, University of Chicago Press, 1998). Recommended but not required is Crystal's The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language (Cambridge University Press, 1995).

      *NB: This course may be counted towards a Linguistics major.
