Coming Summer 2021: Literary Studies-English 290 Online

Good morning! Today we are highlighting an upcoming 2021 Summer course!  


Literary Studies (Eng. 290) will be taught for the first time as a six-week summer course. This class is required for English majors and Writing and Applied Arts majors. If you need this course, especially if you need to take this course online, then this virtual summer class is a great opportunity! 


Dr. Nesvet will be teaching Literary Studies this summer and offers this brief course description:


Reading, writing, and research skills covered in Literary Studies will equip you for upper-level English courses. Focusing on the novel Robinson Crusoe and its many legacies, you will learn close-reading and annotation, apply cultural theory, map the world of Robinson Crusoe digitally, and, finally, visit the University Archives to conduct research on rare copies of never-published Hollywood screenplays. At the end of the course, you’ll have plenty of original research to display in your electronic portfolio for future employers, too.  


Check out all the Summer and Fall 2021 courses. They are sure to be great!
