ENG 3233.002: Honors Seminar: Coming to America
Instructor: Bonnie Lyons
Class Time: T 2:00 - 4:45 p.m.
Class Location: HSS 3.02.26
America is and has always been a country of immigrants. Many recent novels and films focus on this theme in interesting and diverse ways. In this new class, we will study a variety of novels, such as Edwidge Danticat’s Breath, Eyes, Memory, and films, such as El Norte, to pursue this rich theme. We will alternate films and novels, and the class requirements will include an oral presentation, weekly outlines and mini-papers, and a seminar paper. The class will include some lecture but will stress discussion. This course is cross-listed with ENG 4973.003. It can be used to meet upper-division elective requirements for an American Literature course in the English major or minor, ENG 4973, or upper-division elective requirements for the major or minor in American Studies.
