English-1109: Intensive Writing and Reading
Instructor:
Christiane Buuck

Provides intensive practice in integrating academic reading and writing.


English-1110.01 (60): First-Year English Composition—Media Around the World

Instructor: Michael Grifka
What’s the difference between how a country is viewed by others, and how it views itself? Is there such a thing as a national culture? In this course, we will explore media from all over the world, using it to understand how culture is expressed through film, literature, comics, and more. Students will have the opportunity to focus on a country of their choice, and conduct research on that country’s media landscape, as over the course of the semester we build our understandings of how media represents, and even changes, the way a place’s culture is viewed. Students will write analytical and research papers responding to the diverse media available in the world today. Each student will also share their research with their classmates on a regular basis, so that each person gains a familiarity with a number of different places and cultures. Together, we will investigate the questions: how do creators try to address their own cultures differently than other peoples? How can you tell what a place is really like? And how can we avoid stereotypes, bias, and racism when consuming media?

English-1110.02 (60): First-Year English Composition
Instructor:
Francis Donoghue

This is a regular section of 1110 with a built-in theme. Students will cover the usual terrain of English grammar and usage, if in an unorthodox way, using Geraldine Woods’ English Grammar for Dummies (3rd edition). Students will do exercises based on the topics she covers (these will not be graded). Students will then proceed to read a series of short stories, concentrating on analyzing the content of the stories and also on the writing process. Students will expand the degree of difficulty in the second half of the course, when we analyze three novels. We’ll begin the course with a series of warm-up ethnographic exercises. Ethnography will be explained before we get started. Three graded papers.
