What is any sports event but a story--multiple stories--playing out before our eyes? Sports by definition involve drama: conflicts in decision making, in relationships, with nature, and, if we believe it possible, conflicts with the supernatural. It's not an accident that some of our greatest metaphors come from the arena of athletics. Through sports we have a way to look at human values--at the best we have to offer and sometimes the worst. We’ll use sports literature to investigate what is just… and what is unjust… and how we discern which is which. In this class, we will read fiction, non-fiction, drama, and poetry. Books may include SWIMMING TO ANTARCTICA, THE REAL ALL-AMERICANS, TAKE ME OUT, and BEST AMERICAN SPORTS WRITING 2017. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This Aquinas Honors course satisfies an Integrating the Humanities requirement and is a WAC Writing Intensive course. Please note that ENGL 202 is non-repeatable; students wishing to take another 200-level Texts in Conversation course will need to register for ENGL 201, 203, or 204.

Through a close examination of the twentieth century, students gain appreciation for the intricate nature of power and dependency that characterizes the modern world.

This is a Bridge Course whose readings will focus primarily on C.S. Lewis's literary works, especially, but not exclusively, on his fiction. The course will also include some critical works, both Lewis's as well as others' work about Lewis. In addition, numerous biblical passages will be examined, including the parables of Jesus, which, as a parallel to Lewis's work, can demonstrate the theological possibility of narrative. Class lectures and readings in and about Lewis will explore Christian theology and its interdisciplinary relations to literature, especially myth. Through the lens of Lewis's literature, historical, philosophical, moral, educational, and global issues will be considered. Prerequisite: THEO 101 and one 200-level or 300-level THEO course and PHIL 115
