English 0902: 001 Honors Literature/Reading/Writing Fall 2010 Syllabus Instructor: Shiladitya Sen Email: [email protected] Office: Anderson Hall 1151 Class time: MW 8:00-9:40 Office hours: MWF 9:50-10:50 & by appointment Class Location: EA 719 Disability: Any student who has a need for accommodation based on the impact of a disability should (a) contact Disability Resources and Services at 215-204-1280 in 100 Ritter Annex to discuss and coordinate reasonable accommodations and (b) contact me privately to discuss the specific situation as soon as possible. Statement on Academic Freedom: Freedom to teach and freedom to learn are inseparable facets of academic freedom. The University has adopted a policy on Student and Faculty Academic Rights and Responsibilities (Policy # 03.70.02) which can be accessed through the following link: http://policies.temple.edu/getdoc.asp?policy_no=03.70.02 Course Description: Literature, from its earliest versions to the most modern manifestations, has been one of the places where human beings have grappled with the nebulous but troubling figure/concept of the "Other". Through a consideration of diverse texts, both classical and contemporary, “literary” and non-academic, we will attempt to explore some of the various expressions - and effects - of this concept. We will focus especially on the manner in which individual authors and larger groups have constructed themselves via their conception of the “Other.” This will be primarily a discussion class, with little lecturing, and you will be expected to participate regularly. Participation will be graded and carry substantial weight. You will also be expected to engage critically with and interrogate our texts, your colleagues, the wider world around you and, of course, yourself. This critical engagement will, hopefully, be expressed in both the class discussions and in your formal papers.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
