ENGH 400 - 001: Honors Seminar: COVID Culture

Although it is a recent event, the COVID-19 pandemic has already inspired a wide range of cultural products from new subjects for poetry and fiction as well as new forms of presenting drama and changing or accelerating modes of consumption for visual and digital works. Approaching COVID through its cultural products, rather than its political or sociological effects, this English Honors course will explore the role of the imagination as a means of making sense of our cultural moment. Readings will draw from a range of genres from theory, poetry, fiction, drama and nonfiction as well as forms of new media (Ali Smith, Summer; Alice Quinn, Together in a Sudden Strangeness; Richard Nelson, The Apple Family; Michael Lewis, The Premonition)


ENGH 400 001 is open to students in English Honors. Please contact Professor Malouf (mmalouf@gmu.edu) for permission to register.
