Popular Genres Syllabus

Here is a draft of the syllabus for the “Popular Genres” class I will be teaching in Spring 2018: ENGL 144 – Syllabus

I’m trying to cover the respective evolution of detective fiction, science fiction, horror, graphic novels, and children’s literature. Can you think of anything I missed that I ought to include? Let me know!

Here’s the syllabus for my first contemporary literature class, which I taught in the spring of 2017.

From the course evaluations: “All English in HS was boring for me, made reading not fun, beat a book to death until I hated it. This class made me want to read and rediscovered my love for literature. THANK YOU for an amazing class!!!!”
