TCNJ Summer Sessions

ENGL 510: Structure of English – The Politics of Standard English

Professor Felicia Steele

Monday/Tuesday/Thursday (6/12/17 – 7/13/17)

5pm to 7:30pm

This course examines the ways in which Standard English usage has become a site for ideological conflict in American and British culture; in addition, students will explore current linguistic and pedagogical approaches to English and its dialects. By the end of the course, students will understand and have a vocabulary to describe the grammatical features of English and the ideological and cultural foundations of current discussions of grammar, usage, and mechanics. Students will also learn to formulate actionable research related to language and composition instruction.

 

ENGL 554: Seminar in Prose Fiction – The Contemporary Short Story

Professor Jo Carney

Monday/Tuesday/Thursday (7/14/17 – 8/20/17)

5pm to 7:30pm

Many of the most interesting voices in our current literary landscape are practitioners of short fiction:  Chimamanda Adichie, Lydia Davis, Nathan Englander, Edward P. Jones, Ben Marcus, David Means, Karen Russell, George Saunders, among several others.In this seminar we will explore the style and substance of a variety of recent short stories, a genre that has moved far beyond the maximalism v. minimalism divide of the late 20th century.  Realism, magical realism, fabulism, absurdism, slipstream, mainstream, fairy tale, flash fiction, gothic: we will explore how the contemporary short story both exhibits and subverts categorization.
