Senior World Literature

See our Schoology page HERE.

E401 covers contemporary world literature from a variety of genres. The course emphasizes literary analysis and encourages students to make connections between cultures, themes, and styles, while critically evaluating literary elements through discussion, projects, and writings. 

Our guiding question this semester will be: How do our backgrounds shape how we perceive the world?

We will focus on understanding ourselves and others, as we become more empathetic individuals, through reading many perspectives from many different cultures. Concurrently, we will be writing our responses about our reading as well as writing about our own personal experiences.
