William J. Fine, Composition 2, Spring 2018

Course Description:

The design of this course is based on the premise that in order for students to become critically-minded, both as students and responsible citizens, they must understand how to “see” in a variety of ways. Over the course of the semester, you will be invited to explore a series of cultural productions via a diverse set of critical theories or analytical perspectives. Cultural productions include literature, film, popular music, advertisements, and the like – really, just about any artifact of our society, past or present, is fair game.

Practically, the course will strengthen your writing and research skills; after all, “seeing” more effectively is only part of the challenge of taking up positions regarding the world around us; you must be able to support your inferences and communicate them effectively.
