IMF53703 Literature of War & Apocalypse--Scott Berzon

WIN QTR 17--ONLINE Literature of War & Apocalypse

Instructor: Scott Berzon

Class Type: Literature + Mini-Workshop (Fiction; may include some Poetry)

Course Description:
This literature course focuses on an increasingly prevalent genre of fiction that tackles questions as relevant today as ever: What does it mean to survive the horrific? Under what circumstances does a moral compass go astray? To what degree do we have control over our own destinies? In addition to reading a pair of novels in this course (The Road and Slaughterhouse Five), you will also be asked to read short fiction pieces which will be available to you online. You will closely examine the styles and techniques used by writers in this genre and will also have the opportunity to test your own hands at some original work.
