Expanded Course Description
ENG 241 introduces students to African American literature through a survey of short stories, essays, poetry, and autobiography. This course does not require a textbook or the purchase of any course materials. As we move through a selection of literature from the 19th and early 20th centuries, instead of writing traditional essays, we will practice several forms of creative engagement. For example, one week students may make a playlist of African American music to accompany the readings; another assignment may ask students to annotate an assigned reading, transcribe an archival source, or record a short video. None of these assignments will require any special training or previous knowledge, but they will allow us to practice different methods of literary study. This asynchronous WEB course fulfills the following requirements: A&L, IP, and US: DIA. It also counts as a lower-level elective for the English major or minor.
