I am pleased to announce a new graduate course that will be offered in the Fall 2016: English 6048: Poetry Since 1945. We will meet on Mondays from 6:30-9:15 pm.

This course will be a historical exploration of poetry in the age of media. It will both cover and go beyond the canonical print-based narrative to examine how poets explored several media technologies to create and publish their poems. For example, poems written and produced for audio recording and broadcast, or video recording and production, or digital technologies will have different different characteristics from those written for print publication and vocal performance.

This a literature course, but we will take into account pedagogical considerations in our discussions and encourage lesson plan creation as alternatives to traditional papers in major assignments. This course will enhance your ability to analyze and teach poetry.

Advanced undergraduate students are welcomed in this course. Contact Drs. Rosita Rivera or Nancy Vicente in the English Department for details.
