CCU FA 20 ENGL 300 Dashboard


ENGL 300 is a research-intensive course that offers English majors the opportunity to examine a critical issue current in the discipline of English studies and to participate in a rigorous exchange about this issue with their peers. Complete course description here:

In this section of ENGL 300, we are going to probe the idea of originality, specifically by investigating and discussing intramedial (one medium) and intermedial (two or more media) literary allusion, adaptation, and appropriation. Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Invite-Only Dinner Party/Gala Dinner Party (created by Shipwrecked Comedy and produced by Funny or Die) provides the framework for this course. In the series, Poe invites over to dinner an assortment of notable Victorian-era authors, including Louisa May Alcott, Charlotte Brontë, Emily Dickinson, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, H.G. Wells, Oscar Wilde, and George Eliot. We will first read the literature of several of the authors featured in the web series and then watch the murder mystery web series before finally reading a “cannot be named until the mystery is solved” text. Part of the fun is that in order to understand the jokes and solve the crime, you must first know the literature! We will also be leveraging The COVE (The Central Online Victorian Educator), which is a scholar-driven open-access platform, to publish short, weekly, multimodal writing assignments.
