Description of course Genetics B/ Lab:
4 Credit Hours
Instructor: Anne E. Roth-Reinhardt
“The green light at the end of Daisy’s dock.” Wilson and the history cycle. “So it goes.” Morrison and re-memory. The moderns. The Beats. And countless stories of war and the trauma of surviving it. These are a few of the ideas and perspectives offered through the literature of the 20th and 21st centuries—years of volatility and change. Our course will study the American literary experience from 1900 to the present. By reading and analyzing the literature of Faulkner, Hemingway, Stein, O’Connor, Baldwin, and Morrison, among others, we will explore the ever-changing landscape of American literature and consider its influence upon the social and political fabric of the nation. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing.
