NOTE ON RANGE OF TOPICS AND ON MULTICULTURAL LITERACY:
The above list of authors and topics includes both too much and too
little. There is too much literature to be treated adequately in
seventeen weeks; instructors are expected to make a representative,
but robust, selection. There are too few topics to give an adequate
idea of the range of possible approaches the faculty may bring to the
course. The prospective student can nevertheless expect any approach
to be both critical and broad-minded. Instructors can also be expected,
at their individual discretion, in include works from outside the
Western tradition, for the sake of cultural and literary contrast (the
list above gives especially strong hints of this possibility for the
NOTE ON CRITICAL THINKING AND METACONCEPTS AS APPLIED TO LITERARY STUDY:
As a means to the accomplishment of Objective 4 (above), the student
will be exposed to more than critical approach to one or more texts,
and will be exposed to competing cultural and literary histories
(histories that might give meaning to such terms as "Enlightenment,"
"Modernism," and so on).
1. Regular reading assignments.
2. Notebook or other written preparation for class.
3. Class discussions and group work, in which each student is expected
4. Occasional leading of class discussions, and preparation appropriate
