INST 1503 - Past Lives - Writing Intensive

Hours: 3
Foregrounding the studies of literature and writing, exploring historical expressions of identity, engaging a rich, fascinating and often alien past. Topics may trace the influence of earlier notions of identity on contemporary selfhood, recognizing some kinship between past and present. Or they 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.” Reading novels, plays, memoirs, essays, poems, or short stories. Expository writing skills are nurtured, as well as reflective, persuasive, imaginative, or autobiographical writing skills, including at least two thesis essays.
Prerequisites: Not open to students with credit for INST 1501 or 1502.
