Minor in Media, Representation and Social Justice - Sex, Death, and Textuality

ENGL 2001  Sex, Death, and Textuality


Any 15 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Humans understand their lives by telling stories. Students examine the ways in which the core elements of human existence - birth, sex and death - are represented by culture. Considering a variety of texts - including film, TV, internet and print cultures - students challenge their most basic assumptions about what it means to be a human being in relation with other human beings. This non-essay course is directed to students in a program other than English Studies and counts only as an elective. This course may not be credited towards a program in English Studies.
