ENGL 2225 War Stories (Spring: 1 )
War has been a subject of stories across the centuries. This one-credit seminar will focus on nineteenth- through twenty-first-century accounts of war in novels, stories, nonfiction, poems, and films. We will analyze how texts create war stories that are celebratory or cynical, and sometimes both at once, with a focus on issues such as heroism, psychology and trauma, violence, sacrifice, and national belonging. Students will write five short reflection papers (approximately 2 pages each) and a take home final exam with an essay format.
