Description: As an introduction to language and literature, this course is loosely based on the theme of identity, as it appears in three genres: literary non-fiction, fiction, and poetry. We will investigate how language and narrative reflect, represent and perhaps construct identity in a wide variety of literature, both traditional and non-traditional.

Requirements for the course include:

  • a series of examinations and/or a final examination totalling between 25 and 50% of the final grade
