COURSE DESCRIPTION

Storytelling among different ethnic groups within the United States: How collective memories are selected, organized, transformed, contested, and retold as origin myths, multicultural histories, family lore, heroic epics, trickster tales, traumatic experiences, slave narratives, immigrant testimonies, spectacular events, war memorials, celebrity biographies, urban legends, animated fairy-tales, science fiction films, game worlds, and emergent narrative forms.

 

LOCATION/TIME: BCC, ROOM 014, GROUND FLOOR, TUESDAYS, 9:30AM-12:20PM

THIS COURSE STARTS, TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2017 AND ENDS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2016.

*The above courses meet all of the general education requirements for Humanities. They need not be taken in any order, so if you’re interested in one or more of the topics, simply enroll in the courses. To perform successfully in any Humanities course, I highly recommend that you have completed ENGLISH 204A or 204B, or a similar college composition course at another educational institution (though this is not required).

ARTICULATION FOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES:

This class is acceptable for credit at UC and CSU. It counts towards GE AA/AS area 3; CSU area C2; and IGETC area 3. It can be used as an elective for the Liberal Arts and Humanities Associate in Arts Degree Program and the Liberal Arts: Intersegmental General Education Transfer (IGETC) Certificate of Achievement.

I look forward to working with all of you this semester.

Your instructor,
Dylan Eret
