In this class, we?ll read fiction, poetry and essays that address national, racial, ethnic and cultural identity and multiculturalism, whiteness and the relationship between social/personal politics and literary arts. We?ll consider our authors? views on family, community, nation, history and the role of art in our culture. Featured writers include: Phillis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, Hisaye Yamamoto, Judith Cofer, Art Spiegelman, Sherman Alexie, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Junot Diaz, among others.
Students will be expected to read eight online lectures; read and study our primary texts; compose eight ?Starter Posts? and eight ?Response Posts? as well as an ?Ice Breaker? post and ?Final Post? for the discussion board; contribute to the eight ?Unit Wiki? spaces with research, questions, and critical observations; and complete a 7 page web-based research project.
Students will be evaluated for participation (timeliness, effort, completion of assignments), critical depth and engagement with the reading demonstrated through written assignments on the discussion boards, wikis and final projects. Both the content and quality of writing will be considered.
