【Course Objectives】

By reading American literary works, along with experiencing the aesthetic feeling they provide, we will explore the historical and cultural aspects of race, gender, and sexuality and cultivate self-expression skills in both Japanese and English.

【Course Contents】

 Every week, we will focus on an American short story or play (published chiefly from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century) in which an animal appears. Course participants are encouraged to reconsider the reason why literary works often foreground animals--as well as the ways in which animals represent human beings--in light of critical animal studies, an academic discipline that has been established in the 21st century.
 Please not that the English presentation by the designated presenter will be followed by a Q&A session in English during the first half and in Japanese during the second half of the class. Therefore, it is expected that students will proactively speak up in class.
