6 Credits| Dr. Beth HARPER
This course moves beyond basic literary and cultural theories introduced in lower-level courses and brings in special topics that continue to challenge students to think, read, and write critically. A special topic will be introduced each time the course is offered. Recent topics covered include cosmopolitanism and world literature, transmediality and film adaptations, and photography in the age of internet. The instructor will incorporate ongoing campus forums into class planning to bring students in tune with cutting edge research in literary and cultural studies. The class will be conducted in a seminar mode requiring students’ active participation. The goal is for each student to work toward a final project that concludes four years of study at HKU.
Assessment: 100% coursework.
