The trend we will be most interested in observing is the current resurgence in the popularity of cartoons. We will spend a good deal of time discussing The Simpsons as it has set the standard for the modern animated show. The ultimate goal of this inquiry will be the production of self-reflexive, non-fiction writing. Outcomes The objective of this class is to train students to be effective expository writers as well as self-reflexive cultural critics. In order to accomplish these objectives, they must be willing to take part in the accumulation of theoretical and practical knowledge both in the realm of writing and the realm of analysis. Every student enrolled in freshman writing, English 200 (the gateway course), ENLS 201/202 (European Traditions core curriculum), our 400-level majors' courses, the capstone seminar, graduate courses, or honors thesis will learn how to write clearly and to develop coherent arguments.
