More Information

Section Description

This online course is a study of the short story form. Students read stories ranging from horror and fantasy to science fiction and gritty realism tracking the many manifestations of this art form since the early 19th century. Supplementing the fiction are essays, interviews and critical reviews about our stories and their authors, as well as a series of online lectures and research projects wherein we connect the stories to their historical and/or literary context and discuss their contemporary relevance.

Section Expectation

Students will read 12 short stories, participate in online discussion boards with short written responses to assigned questions, collaborate to create course wikis building a critical community around each story, and submit a final research project on a chosen author's work.

Evaluation

Grades will be based on participation, effort, timeliness and polish.
