Spring Quarter Registration Begins this Monday, February 8th


It’s already midterm time, so you know what that means: time to register for spring quarter courses!

The Department of English offers a number of fascinating and useful courses for majors, minors, and non-ENG students. Some highlights are below, and all course offerings and descriptions are available via the COURSES drop-down menu at the top of the page.

  • ENG 275: Literature & Film – Crime Fiction & Film Noir with Chris Eagle. Examine “noir”, the cycle of cinema and fiction focusing on crime and detective stories spanning from roughly 1941-1958.
  • ENG 362: American Literature from 1865-1920 with June Chung. Examine American fiction written during the latter half of the nineteenth century and the first years of the twentieth century, roughly the period spanning from after the Civil War up through World War I. Authors covered include Henry James, Edith Wharton, W.E.B. Du Bois, Zitkala Sa, Mark Twain, Theodore Dreiser, Kate Chopin, and T.S. Eliot.
  • ENG 387: Topics in Contemporary Literature – Queer Literature, Film, & Theory with Bill Johnson-Gonzalez. This course provides an introduction to the still-growing field of queer theory, which emerged in the 1980s as a means of questioning stable categories of identity and examining the historically changing meanings of gender and sexuality in culture.

We look forward to seeing you in these or any other English classes next term!
