Love and Its Discontents (3) There are so many conventions and cliches about love that artists and critics enter that thicket of ideas at their own risk. This course takes that risk because such ostensibly common understandings of love provide a way to investigate how artists imagine these shared ideals differently, and therefore how they approach established storytelling conventions in distinctive ways. In doing so, students discover some of the discontent, instability, lack of clarity, and false oppositions that complicate any attempt to portray what love is; and attend to the many different kinds of stories writers tell to confront these complications. The class rethinks literature by engaging in an introductory way in the practices of professional literary critics, attempting and adapting three competing interpretative models to particular interests and concerns. In the end, students grasp and articulate new ways to understand both the beautiful complexity that is love, and the various technical, thematic, and imaginative means by which some of the most powerful authors of the Anglo-American tradition bring all of its complexity vividly to life.

Sports Literature (3) Although the origin of sport in ancient social rituals has long been acknowledged, academic study has paid slim attention to the cultural significance of modern sport, often dismissing it as frivolous entertainment. This course explores the ways in which sports writing illustrates the profound impact of athletics on both our public myths and private fantasies. The course focuses on three areas: sport as a social discourse that establishes important communal ties, both challenging and reinforcing conceptions of gender, class, and nation; sport as a spiritual discourse that develops ideas of the sacred and the transcendent; and sport as a physical experience that promotes particular understandings of the body and movement. Primary texts include Friday Night Lights, The Last Amateurs, Into Thin Air, The Natural, and Hoop Dreams. Secondary readings include essays by Bourdieu, Geertz, Huizinga, Callois, and Winnicott. Students write an analysis of an actual sporting event as well as an analysis of a sports literature text.

Desire and Identity Who, how, and what do we want? How are gender and sexuality distinct and interrelated? How are desires and identities shaped by race, gender, class, embodiment, and nationality? This course considers these questions and more through literary, cultural, and critical texts drawn from the Renaissance to the present day. It serves as an introduction to both literary analysis and the study of gender, sexuality, and queer theory.

Literary Hauntings (3) Apparitions have long been a staple of fiction, perhaps since early storytellers gathered around the fire to swap spine-tingling tales. What are the sources of readers' perennial attraction to spectral beings, haunted houses, paranormal events, and things that go bump in the night? Students read a diverse selection of short stories and novels by classical and contemporary authors of ghost stories and other literary hauntings, ranging from Edgar Allen Poe, W. R. James, Henry James, and Edith Wharton to Shirley Jackson, R. K. Narayan, Susan Hill, and Toni Morrison. Students consider the elements that make such uncanny tales satisfying and deepen their understanding of the forms and variations of literary texts written to produce both dread and pleasure.

Trauma and Memory (3) The relationship between trauma and literature is a paradoxical one; most recent understandings of trauma suggest one of its defining characteristics is its resistance to adequate representation, i.e. traumatic events are too horrific to tell. At the same time, writers often attempt to reconstruct traumatic events in novels. This course explores and studies this paradox and applies various interpretive strategies in an attempt to understand the effects of trauma in literature and the process of writing about traumatic experiences. Required texts include: Art Spiegelman's Maus, Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye, and Larry Heinemann's Paco's Story.

Post-Colonial Crime Fiction (3) This course explores crime fiction and contemporary cinema from Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. The class discusses how social problems such as corruption, urbanization, failed democracy, and poverty lead to certain types of crimes and certain types of stories about those crimes, for instance, why fiction from the Global South so often takes the criminal's point of view and rarely allows readers to empathize with police or detectives. In addition, ethical issues such as justice, revenge, and forgiveness are also explored to try to understand how they function in particular social and cultural contexts.

Comic Books and Graphic Novels (3) This course introduces students to examples of comics and graphic novels in order to consider three overarching questions: whether comics and graphic novels are "the new literary" as has been claimed by cultural critics; does the idea that these popular texts can be considered literature redefine our understanding of the definition of literature; and how these texts respond to and inform public discussion on complex contemporary issues. The course allows students to investigate the field and procedures of both literary and cultural studies through the analysis of these texts. Readings include, but are not limited to, issues of Batman, Watchmen, and Beautiful Darkness.

Playing in the Dark (3) The American Renaissance is often celebrated for its optimism but this course explores its darker side. This dark side derived from challenges to the ideals of sympathy at heart of this grand optimism caused by slavery and the Civil War. This course pays particular attention to the literal and figurative ghosts which haunt these writers' attempts to imagine a unified, egalitarian society. To do so, the class investigates the intersection of the Gothic and the sentimental that these ghostly figures represent. The course is thus about how some of the best-known nineteenth-century American writers, and some of their less well-known peers, confronted these apparitions in order, perhaps, to exorcise them.

Short Films (3) In film studies, feature films that run somewhere between 90 minutes and two hours are generally privileged as constituting definitive work for a particular director or actor. But what about movies that are short, say under an hour in length? What is it about a film's length that makes us automatically dismiss a short? In literature, it is recognized that the short story is not necessarily lesser than the novel, but rather that the two should be considered as different beasts entirely. This course examines whether short films should be treated differently from features; if the techniques applied to feature films are valid when considering the short film; what the historical precedence is for the short film; is the short film obsolete, or useful; and what is even considered a short film. Examining the phenomenon from theoretical, historical, and practical perspectives, the course explores whether the short film is a cinematic format, genre, or anomaly.

Queer Theory (3) Explores the dynamic, interdisciplinary field of queer theory from its emergence in the early 1990s through its most recent articulations. Interrogates the meaning of the term "queer," its complex relationship to LGBTI identities and practices, and its transformation of literary and historical scholarship and methodologies.

Modernism High and Low (3) This course pairs classics of "high" modernism (mostly American) with texts that are, or have historically been, outside the modernist canon. By looking at the relationship between these insider and outsider texts it becomes clear that modernism is defined in large part by what it defines itself against. This class examines the opposition between the literary and the popular, as well as that between the aesthetic and the political, and considers the way that race and gender are represented in modernism, among other things. Authors include Conrad, Chopin, Chandler, Faulkner, Highsmith, and DuBois.
