Summer 2017

Imperial Sunset: The Decline and Fall of European Empires in the 20th Century (MALS667-010)

  • Wednesdays, 6-9 p.m. (June 7 - August 9, plus several supplementary sessions)
  • Newark Campus
  • Instructor: Raymond Callahan

In 1914 Europeans--and their overseas offshoots--ruled the world.  In less than 50 years these empires had all vanished, often leaving wreckage and ongoing conflict behind.  This half century of dramatic transformation largely shaped our world.  How and why it all happened will be the focus of this course.

Fall 2017

Memory Speaks:  The Craft of Contemporary Memoir (MALS667-010)

To document, explore, commemorate, and ultimately to understand the relationship of ones' life to history is no easy undertaking, but this is the task of the memoirist.  From the initial recollection of events to the quest to bestow upon these events inward and outward meaning, memoir is a public genre, and it requires the imagination of the storyteller, the knowledge of the historian, and the discipline of the editor:  a delicate interplay of skill and talent that, with practice, yields memorable literature.  Creative, contemplative, and critical, Memory Speaks is a disciplined exploration of the theory and practice of written recollection, grounded in reading and discussion of influential memoirists' work as well as workshop discussion of participant work.

Nature and Human Nature (MALS600-010)

Addresses the development, status, and understanding of humanity within a larger context, e.g., how writers in various disciplines have defined humanity, nature, and the relationship between the two, or the interaction between humans.
