In this course we will define terrorism the way the Arabs define it, as any organized violence, by an individual, group or state, legitimate or illegitimate, against a civilian population, either intentional or unintentional.Course Objectives: This is a global literature course, introducing students to close textual analysis, primary and secondary source research, and creative role-playing to better understand the aesthetic, cultural, political, philosophical, structural, and psychological components of the work. The creative webfolios and oral presentations make up 50% of the grade; participation, attendance, and WEEKLY assignments make up the other 50.The objective is not just to enhance understanding and appreciation of literature and the skills to analyze literature, but to see literature embedded within the entire global spectrum, a useful exercise for non-majors in business, media, communication and even health science. Method of Instruction: Cyberspace Sessions will consist of uploading Close Textual Analyses into FILES.
Grading: You will be given Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory for the weekly assignments, but letter grades for the close textual analyses, oral presentations and creative webfolios.Students will be introduced to a wide range and depth of material from all over the world and be asked to read and write critically and creatively on a weekly basis. Choose a passage, at least one page, from each book in that cluster, write it out triple spaced; then analyse it in terms of language, vocabulary, sentence structure, paragraph organization, figures of speech, rhythm, narrative voice, characterization, relationship of dialogue to description, relationship to plot, structure and rest of novel or play, cultural implications and other extrinsic factors related to politics, philosophy, geography etc.It is just as important to have analyze the material closely, as it is to interact creatively with the literature. Keep all your analyses, usually three, in one document and upload to FILES. We will have frequent discussions in the listserv about the books, the analyses, and related topics.It is significant that terrorism demands a certain amount of intelligence in order to achieve its devastating effect.Formalist agenda about character, plot, style/language, theme, setting/geography, descriptive techniques and narrative point of view must be supplemented and developed to deal with how "literature engages with contemporary critical understandings of nationalism, race, gender, sexuality, global multiculturalism..." I would add cyberspace to the list.
Because this is about twentieth and twenty first century literature, we will include the two World Wars with All Quiet on the Western Front, Night, No Exit, The Plague about Algerian terror as well as the German occupation and natural scourges, to Islamic militant terrorism in Egypt in The Day The Leader Was Killed, Satanic Verses, God Dies by the Nile and War in the Land of Egypt, to Israeli/Palestinian terror in Martyr's Crossing and Wild Thorns, to the terror of hostage-taking and kidnapping in Mao II, News of a Kidnapping, and The Hostage, to the terror of totalitarian regimes such as China in Red Azalea and Soul Mountain.
