Instructional Method: Online. Self Stories (3) This course studies the relationship between identity and story. The working hypothesis is that people are made up not so much of the composite of their experiences, as of the stories they tell about their experiences. We will read literature focusing on this theme as well as theories of the narrative nature of identity. Course texts include "How Selves Become Stories," Narrative of the Life of an American Slave by Frederick Douglass; "What is an Experience" by William James; Fools Crow by James Welch, Between the World and Me by Ta Nehisi Coates, An American Childhood by Annie Dillard, and Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury.

Instructional Method: Online. Literature Without Borders (3) This course resists monolithic claims about "hostile nations" and explores how to search for and interpret contemporary literature (and, where available, films) from the seven "countries of concern" designated by the Executive Order of January 27, 2017. Students are not expected to speak the languages of these many countries. Course readings begin by using material curated by and translated for the website Words without Borders. Throughout the course, each student is assigned one country from our list and researches beyond the scope of the material read in class. In the final week, students write a culminating paper and present their material to the rest of the class. Meets with LIT-667 001.
