ENG2850 Great Works II Fall 2022
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Our world is created through stories. In this class (Great Works 2850, in case you forgot), we will read a cross section/sample of riveting works of literature from the 17th century to the present. It will be beautiful. We are going to read across genres—novels, poetry, bits of memoirs, short stories. Hopefully, we can watch some movies, look at some art, and hold class discussions digging into art, literature, and politics, and everything in between. You’ll learn how to speak and write about literature using proper literary terminology without sacrificing your own voice and personal style in the process. We will reconstruct the socio-historical and cultural contexts of the texts we read. We are going to do a lot of scaffolded bits of writing to help us build to the bigger final essays.

Sample Assignment: Science Fiction Social Justice Story
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

This assignment is inspired by the learnings that arose from the workshop, “Fostering Play in the Classroom - Pedagogies to Build Creativity, Connection and Light to Oppressive Spaces”. Based on group dialogue, feedback, and the desire to build on pedagogies of play in the workshop, this science fiction short story assignment has been created as an additional layer of liberatory, contemplative learning for students that can be used/tweaked to work in a variety of courses. Powerful conversations arose in the workshop surrounding power/oppression, positionality and how this impacts our ability to engage in play, and the importance of holding both/and (i.e. - joy/sadness, pain/pleasure, restriction/liberation). This assignment attempts to deepen these reflections through creativity, storytelling, and removal of limits for dreaming in a world with obstacles.

Speculative Fiction and "Society"
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In this class the topic is speculative fiction, an area of English Literature that includes Science Fiction and Fantasy, among other genres. Over the course of this class we will think about different reasons why people might read or write speculative fiction, culminating in an independent research paper where you will come up with your own question to investigate. The first half of the class will focus on exploring speculative genres and building a framework for literary analysis. We will continue this work into the second half of the class with an added focus on how to conduct research, formalize research questions and arguments, and write a longer academic paper.

This course provides students with an introductory understanding of identity, focusing specifically on the concepts of gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, class, ethnicity, and other aspects of social location and identification. The course also includes an analysis of the appearance of gender and sexuality as integrated social concepts by reading and discussing contemporary American texts across multiple genres and media. This open educational resource was created specifically for English 2180 (Studies in Identity and Orientation) at New York City College of Technology, CUNY. If you have been assigned to teach this course or one like it, feel free to use and adapt the materials posted here. I have suggested a reading schedule under “Required Readings,” but you will find additional readings under “Recommended Readings” that you may use to replace or supplement the required readings.

Teaching Audre Lorde, A Sample Syllabus
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

The premise of this series of classes is that the work of poet and essayist Audre Lorde has myriad lessons to teach us not only about current social issues and problems, but also about our individual and collective processes of dealing with them.  The key question becomes: how can we use our feelings to negotiate our way through these issues? How can we use our selves—our experiences, our intuitions and the insights born of our differences--as resources? Lorde was adamant that all of our most difficult emotions and experiences could be *used* for our collective progress toward creating an equal, just and healthy society.
