We will explore areas familiar and unfamiliar, and we will bring into question many of our preconceived assumptions. In any event, the texts and their various portrayals of violence will be the starting point for our various inquiries; from there, we will draw on various academic and scholarly sources to help us explore and delineate these questions. Hence, research and the collection of mater- ials will be extremely important . You will have the opportunity to explore the texts from class and follow your own interests on the way toward illuminating and explaining the points we are making; in the process, you will learn how to use such sources to fur- ther your thinking and ideas, cite them correctly, and utilize them in creative written ar- gumentation, evaluation, and explanation.
