We will read classic and contemporary examples of the short story from world literature (Irish, North American, British, German, West Indian), from ethnic perspectives (Native American, African American), and from male and female writers. We will practice the close interpretive reading, writing, and research skills necessary for the study of literature.

In addition, you will be introduced to the major bibliographies, guides, and online sources involved in literary studies, and you will learn the research methods specific to the study and interpretation of literature."
