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; 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.

In Graham Greene's "The End of the Affair," a novelist wages a battle against God. At stake is an argument over creation: Is God the one directing human actions or do we humans author our own fates? Each act of writing, though admittedly with less drama, invokes a struggle. How can we do justice on the page to the vision in our mind's eye? How can we trust our writing to convey whatever truths we believe in? Is inspiration more "honest" than the revised thought? Or how, in the case of Anatole Broyard, another of the authors we'll read, can the written word help us understand our pursuit of earthly pleasures? This course will focus on the pleasure (and, yes, the pain) involved in the process of composition. Our readings, which also include Nobel-prize winner J.M Coetzee's "Waiting for the Barbarians," will serve as the grist for your own thinking and writing. Over the term, you will write four revised essays ranging from literary analysis to gonzo journalism.

What is the point of going to college? Regardless of individual goals or purposes, education begins in conflict — between previously held beliefs and new ideas and assumptions about how to make sense of the world. In this course, we will examine the role of conflict in education, considering how both the curriculum and the culture of schools and universities either transform identity or encourage conformity. We will identify and analyze representations of education in a variety of texts: essays, short stories, and a novel (Brideshead Revisited). In addition, students will gain experience writing different kinds of academic papers, from textual critiques to personal narratives to argumentative essays. By focusing on student writing, we will also consider the relationship between writing and learning, as well as the ways that academic writing enters into the "conflict or conformity" themes.

This art and humanties course will examine the concept of portraiture and its inevitable conflicts, chiefly those that arise between the identities we construct for ourselves and the identities that others project upon us. We will look closely at the power dynamics that exist not only between model and painter, but also between writer and reader, actor and audience, as well as lover and beloved. By the end of the course, we will have a better understanding of the subtle control that each exerts over the other, and a better sense of what such control might mean to members of such a visually saturated world (that's us).

Our readings will include Tracy Chevalier's soon-to-be-released-as-a-feature-film novel Girl With a Pearl Earring, The Odes of Keats, and some short stories by Colette; we will also look at paintings by Vermeer, Vuillard and Chardin; photographs by Cindy Sherman; and films such as the underappreciated Chuck and Buck, The Virgin Suicides and perhaps even I Shot Andy Warhol.

Assignments will require both analytical and creative rigor — we will produce mostly individual, but sometimes collaborative essays, using mostly the written word, but sometimes the canvas or camera. This class will be fun. I promise.

This course meets every Sunday afternoon from 1-5pm. and will take place at a variety of venues specifically chosen to explore the collaborative creation of art in public settings. The first 6 weekends we will be building and painting the stage set for the non-profit Burns Park Players Community Theater production of Bye, Bye Birdie. This will be a full 'hands-on' experience, which will challenge your aesthetic assumptions while exploring techniques and tools for the making of large-scale theatrical scenery. The second half of the course begins with learning basic color theory, design and reproduction techniques and will require active participation in the designing and painting of a public mural. The final exam will involve a full weekend (Sat. and Sun.) outdoors creating a miniature 'Master Painting' in pastel and tempera on the sidewalk in front of the Diag. Although this course does not require any previous experience, due to the public nature of the various projects it will be expected that the student already possess an excellent work ethic as well as the ability to grasp aesthetic principles and apply them in a physically demanding, team oriented, public environment. First meeting Thursday Jan.8th, from 8-9pm in the Art Studio, Alice Lloyd Residence Hall, Ground Floor. Thereafter, locations on site TBD. Note: This course will require the purchase of various art materials. A specific list of materials will be available on the first day of class. There is also a lab fee of $75 to cover supplied materials. No prior experience required.

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 overwhelmed by the complexity of it all? In this course we will demystify the art of seeing. Learning to paint is a means towards learning to see. 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 painting you will find out how much there is to see and how beautiful things really are. This course will explore our perceptual world in terms of color by introducing the student to basic color theory, paint handling, color mixing, design, and reproduction techniques via challenging visual exercises and stimulating personal projects. We will concentrate on still-lifes and live figure models as our subject matter. Towards the end of the course, students will be expected to develop painting ideas of their own, combining their own aesthetic with processes and visual information learned in this course. Note: This course will require the purchase of various art materials related to acrylic painting. A specific list of materials will be available on the first day of class. There is also a lab fee of $75, which will cover the hiring of the model(s). This is a rigorous course with extensive painting assignments outside of class. There will also be required field trips to museums which will be scheduled separately. No prior experience required.

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings is one of the most widely read and beloved books of the second half of the twentieth century and has been brought to the screen in one of the most ambitious cinematic projects of all time. What is it that makes Tolkien's work so compelling?

Perhaps as remarkable as Tolkien's success is the fact that he wrote The Lord of the Rings at all. He was not a writer of fiction by profession; instead he was the notably under-productive (even in the Oxford of the 1930s-50s) Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo Saxon at Oxford. With very few (but excellent) works of scholarship to his credit, colleagues at times wondered what he was doing. Part of the answer was that he was grading papers for money — orphaned at an early age, with a large family, he was always chronically short of cash. Indeed, it was on the backs of examination papers that he began to compose his fiction. The Hobbit, his breakthrough (and at that point only) book appeared almost by accident: he lent the unfinished manuscript to a friend who had the flu and she passed it on to a former student of Tolkien's, who worked for a publishing house. The Lord of the Rings sprang from the rejection of the work that Tolkien really wanted to publish (and never did in his lifetime). Now we can watch the evolution of his story from the first drafts through his own later efforts to interpret his work for fans to the screen. The existence of so many of Tolkien's letters and papers gives us a chance to watch the author at work, and to explore fundamental questions about what it means to be a writer.

One year after the "liberation" of Iraq, ten years after the "liberation" of Kuwait, twenty years after the Iranian Revolution, thirty years after the Yom Kippur War, etc., the Near East continues to grip us in military, political, economic, and religious terms. In this discussion seminar we will look at some of the issues as they have become more recently pressing, and our discussions will be based upon individual projects rather than the sound bites of the day. Among issues we will discuss are: What is the most likely future of Jerusalem? How do we meld religious claims with historical inheritances? Does area expertise guarantee reasonable policy decisions? How long will we stay in Iraq? Who will survive Sharon and Arafat? How can citizens make decisions based upon imperfect information? How should Americans deal with the legacy of September 11? We will discuss these and other possible issues when first we meet and then map out a strategy that best meets the needs of student interests.

St Petersburg, which celebrates its 300th anniversary this year, and is the subject of many special events at the University of Michigan during the current Academic Year, is a major center of world culture, famous for its art, its architecture, its splendid palaces, and the many works of literature, which it has inspired. The city is both a statement of imperial power (founded by Peter the Great to be a "window onto Europe") and a sinister, even diabolical city in the eyes of many artists. It is mysterious, magical, and seductive. This course will introduce the city in its glory, its mystery, and its intriguing contradictions. We will look at art, history, and literature, and will make use of multi-media and Internet resources to explore St. Petersburg in its many incarnations. Informal classes, with discussion, and one paper required.

Any inquiry into the nature of writing depends upon an equivalent query into the nature of audience: before we can examine the full array of writing options available to us, we must consider for whom we write. This course will familiarize students with a range of contexts defining questions of audience and offers approaches to the act of writing tailored to these contexts. Throughout the term, students will refine their abilities to recognize and adapt to multiple audiences; students will reflect on the different ways writers speak of audience, voice, style and composition in their varied disciplines and fields.

The lecture series will feature university and community speakers and discussants accomplished in both the writing of their respective fields and the teaching of those fields' particulars. We will collaborate with professionals in publishing and editing; law and legal culture; sociology and social work; medicine and associated health fields; and history, literature and journalism. We will abstract from these collaborations both a sense of what skills are shared by all disciplines and how these skills are best adapted to the rhetorical and discipline-specific requirements of each.
