In this course, students study the short story as a major literary genre, reading, interpreting, and analyzing a representative selection of texts. Students apply critical contexts and practice various theoretical approaches to the readings. Prerequisites: Grade of C or better in ENGL110M or equivalent, or permission of the instructor. (Fulfills English or Humanities requirement.)
The Winterim Short Story course will take students on an international journey, reading short stories from less explored lands, near-deserted spaces, and places we think we know quite well until we revisit them in story.
