Aimed equally at literature and journalism students, this course trains students in the genres of writing about the arts that can lead to local or international publication, with a goal of each student taking at least one of the documents they create during the semester through the full process from pitch to publication in a non-campus venue. We will examine the conditions of the current field and market of arts writing, locally and internationally, online and in print, and analyse the requirements of a number of different genres of arts-writing, from reviews of single artworks, to interviews with artists, to guides to an exhibition. 

Students will read and write about a variety of art media, from literature to music, film, and computer games, with students encouraged to pursue projects in the arts that most interest them. Guest speakers will give students opportunities to learn from professional writers and editors, and students will frequently put themselves in the editor’s shoes when workshopping classmates’ writing.  By the end of the semester each student will assemble a portfolio of arts-writing written to professional specifications. 

By default a JRL course, students can list this as a LIT class if their final portfolio contains no more than 1 document written about a non-literature artform.

This course involves two elements: a survey of ancient and modern thought regarding the nature of leadership and statesmanship; and, an investigation of particular leaders and statesmen through biography and autobiography. The course is intended to raise questions such as these: What is leadership? What is statesmanship? What kind of knowledge do leaders and statesmen possess? Should leaders be bound by ethical and moral principles? What is the role of ambition in political life?

 

Prerequisites: CIV 101 and 102.


This course will give students exposure to American literature in a variety of forms, from letters and poems to the short story, the novel and the play. From its beginnings as a colonial society to its rise as a major twentieth century power, America has experienced great social change. The nation’s literature has, at turns, caused, responded to and reflected those various upheavals.

This particular section of the course can be sub-titled “The National Literature of Irrationalism.” 

American Literature is at the heart of American History: many politicians attributed the end of slavery, for example, to the success of an anti-slavery novel (Uncle Tom’s Cabin). But that novel was unusual precisely because it was a simple, realistic representation of social conditions. American literature, others have argued, addresses the world in stranger ways: rejecting realism for romance, it’s philosophically abstract, formally inventive, and obsessed with the weirder parts of human experience. If America is a country whose constitution is founded on Enlightenment ideas of rationality, it's also a culture capable of electing an irrationalist like Donald Trump president. So while this course will address fundamental questions like how texts by enslaved Africans, native Americans, white aristocrats, and middle-eastern immigrants can all count as “American,” we’ll focus on that underlying strangeness. Immerse yourself in an America of ghosts, madmen, murderers, mutineers, fools, tricksters, demonic possessions, fanatics, and all kinds of revolutionaries.

CIV 203 tackles important questions regarding the human condition within their historical context. It examines how perceptions, ideas and social organizations have changed over time as well as the ways in which people in different places and times have sought to answer certain ‘big questions.’ Such questions transcend ‘civilizational’ divides and are part of our common humanity; hence, this course takes a comparative approach. Students will engage with questions that are relevant to present-day dilemmas in their society.

This particular iteration of CIV 203 will be devoted to an examination of liberal education about justice and the gods through a close study of four texts -- Plato's Republic Books I and II, Averroes’ Commentary on Plato’s Republic, selected chapters of Maimonides Guide of the Perplexed and Aristotle’s Politics Book VIII.
