ENGL 201 - 06 What Happens Next: Serial Lit - T - R - - - 1330 - 1510 OEC 210
CRN: 22461 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Gordon D. Grice Much of the best literature comes in the form of serials: narrative works published in installments spread over time. Serials allow writers to work on big canvasses and sometimes even learn from audience feedback. This course will examine serials across several genres -- novels by writers like George Eliot, nonfiction by writers like Truman Capote, comix by creators like Art Spiegelman, and more. We’ll read these works the way they were meant to be experienced, always eager for the next installment. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing.
