Course Description

These courses aim at developing the understanding and writing of academic English and will guide students through the processes of text analysis, evaluation, drafting and editing. Classroom work will focus on identifying features of language at different levels of textual design and will show how vocabulary and grammar relate to the rhetorical function and context of communication. Model essays and practice material will be available during the course of the seminar. Students will be expected to contribute work on a regular basis.

  • The Tudors
    • The Tudors were a heck of a horrible bunch. What with Henry VIII and his unlucky wives, and Queen Bess and her slaughtered suitors, the Tudor kings and queens were royally rotten. This course will provide the opportunity to examine academic approaches to this period of history. No prior knowledge of the topic is required, but an interest in exploring and discussing aspects of this era of English history is encouraged.
  • Bond, James Bond
    • Which Bond is your favorite? A question almost everyone has an opinion on. James Bond is one of the best-known entertainment franchises in the world – a world that has shifted and changed considerably since the first book was published in 1953. No prior knowledge of the topic is required, but an interest in exploring and discussing aspects of the James Bond phenomenon are encouraged.
  • Film Adaptations
    • Don’t you just hate it when Hollywood ruins your favorite book? Well you've found the right place to gripe about it. In addition to covering the finer points of academic research and writing, this course aims to provide students with a basic introduction to the study of film adaptation. No prior knowledge of film studies is assumed, but an interest in analyzing films and the true stories, video games, novels and even poems they are adapted from is important.
  • Graphic Narratives
    • Though graphic narratives may not readily come to mind as primary texts for the examination of cultural theories, that's exactly what we will do in this class. We will transform the way in which students think about graphic narratives as a means of exploring the finer points of academic writing in English.
  • The Gothic
    • Come over to the dark side....of fiction. The gothic has been an important part of film and literature for centuries. This course will examine gothic literature and the reasons it is so appealing to us as well as develop and fine-tune student's formal writing and research skills. No prior experience with the topic is assumed, but an interest in it is.
