The purpose of this course is for students to become acquainted with literary narratives that we will study from ethical perspectives. Our emphasis will be on works in diverse genres by authors who invite us to contemplate contemporary ethical issues in such areas as disability, age, gender/sexuality, artificial intelligence, colonialism, and racism. This class is one of the gateway courses eligible to count toward the English major, but you don’t have to be an English major to take the class. We will be using a range of writing and discussion techniques to express ideas about the texts that we read. This is a course that will require active participation.
