INST 1503 - Past Lives

Hours: 4
These courses will explore historical expressions of identity, engaging a rich, fascinating and often alien past. Courses may trace the influence of earlier notions of identity on contemporary selfhood, recognizing some kinship between past and present. Or courses may examine the particularity of identity as conceived by other historical periods. Subtopics may include “Epic Identities,” “Inventing Childhood,” “The Libertine,” “Flappers and Gangsters,” “Arthurian Subjects.” Students will read novels, plays, memoirs, essays, poems, or short stories. Courses will nurture expository, reflective, persuasive, imaginative, and autobiographical writing skills, including at least two thesis essays.
