EXPO E-42A Writing in the Humanities
Spring Term 2017 CRN 24832
This course is designed for students who wish to build upon the skills developed in EXPO E-25 in order to produce more advanced research and writing in the humanities. The course is also appropriate for students who wish to review their research and writing skills before embarking on a proseminar at Extension or graduate study elsewhere. Students are introduced to the work of writing in the humanities via focused study in the field of literature. During the first part of the semester, students read and write about literary texts; during the second part of the semester, students develop their own independent research project in a humanities field of their choosing. This project involves developing a viable research question; finding, analyzing, and interpreting resources; and developing and refining an original argument in a final paper.
