Yes
GEP Categories
Humanities
Humanities Open when gep_category = HUM
Each course in the Humanities category of the General Education Program will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:
 
 
Explain how Britain’s hopes and concerns as a rising world power are reflected in its literature.
 
 
Measure, first paper assignment, second question:

[quote from Gulliver’s Travels, p.172]

In this book, evidently engaged with the idea of exploration and discovery of new lands and peoples, does Gulliver himself represent the modern colonizer? Is he more like those who are colonized by others? Is he both? Choose whatever you think makes the best evidence from any of the 4 voyages to make your case.
 
 
Analyze the key role of representation and figurative language in the ways British writers and poets imagined the world within their literature.
 
 
Measure: First paper assignment, first question:

Explain, by using whatever evidence in the story you find most persuasive, how Behn consistently represents Oroonoko as always internally divided, torn between differing and often conflicting peoples, races, genders, and cultural values. Does this repeated pattern of divisions in the story help to explain the peculiarly grisly and vivid detail in Behn’s depiction of Oroonoko’s death?
 
 
Express literary interpretations in focused, coherent writing that draws upon evidence from class texts.
 
 
Measure: second paper assignment follows a draft/revision of draft process; second question
Second Paper Topics.
· Paper due as a draft at the start of class
· Revised paper due at the start of the final exam
· You are to pick only one of these questions and write a well-organized essay about it.
·
Option 2. What is the significance of those strange, echoing Marabar caves in the middle of the story in Forster’s A Passage to India? Develop an interpretation of the novel that considers the “Boum” of these caves (heard by Mrs. Moore, Dr. Aziz, and Adela) in relation to the rest of the story that unfolds both in and beyond the caves. Why is this odd sound at the center of the story?
