Knowledge-Values Courses: Writing About Literature
This course uses critical reading as a foundation for developing critical thinking and writing skills. Reading literary representations of “the barbaric,” from its classical origins as a linguistic category to contemporary representations in the discourse of terrorism, we trace the representation of the “barbarous” other alongside the “civilized” self. Students learn to fashion their own ideas about what they read and to argue those ideas persuasively in writing.
