Reading with Scientists:
How to Export Literature
- Course Number: ENGL 148RS
Check on GOLD.
- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 148AA-ZZ
- Quarter: Fall 2018
This course considers an experiment: what would happen if we assigned literature in a science classroom? What questions, for instance, could a well-timed excerpt of Frankenstein help you to explore in an Artificial Intelligence course? We will discuss what is to be gained and lost by making literature more mobile. How would such a model of teaching ask us to rethink the lines that we draw between disciplines, or between general education requirements and specialized majors? For the final project, teams of students will work together to choose an audience they want to reach, an issue they want to address, and a text they want to “export” in order to address it. Students will be encouraged to seek direct input from their proposed audiences, and our collective goal will be to compile an open-source collaborative portfolio of our ideas that can be shared with communities beyond our classroom.
