ENGL 203 - W11 American Idealism M - W - - - - 1335 - 1510 MHC 201
CRN: 22530 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lucy A. Saliger In this election year, candidates of various political persuasions tap into long-standing ideals such as freedom, democracy, equality, and progress. Moreover, there is a long tradition of U.S. political candidates invoking the American Dream. Clearly, these terms mean different things to different people. In this course, we will read texts which exemplify, examine, and at times overtly argue for or against particular versions of these concepts. We will contextualize these readings historically as we look for connections and differences in the interpretations of these ideals and the ways in which they do or do not manifest in the U.S. over time. Authors may include Willa Cather, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Langston Hughes, Francisco Jimenez, Martin Luther King, Meridel Le Sueur, Henry David Thoreau, and Mark Twain. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
