  Articles - Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Literature is literally "acquaintance with letters" as in the first sense given in the Oxford English Dictionary (from the Latin littera meaning "an individual written character (letter)").
Critics may exclude works from the classification "literature", for example, on the grounds of a poor standard of grammar and syntax, of an unbelievable or disjointed story-line, or of inconsistent or unconvincing characters.
Some recent philosophy works are argued to merit the title "literature", such as some of the works by Simon Blackburn; but much of it does not, and some areas, such as logic, have become extremely technical to a degree similar as that of mathematics.

 Forum 2004 - Documents: Literature and War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
It is often said that the first victim of war is the truth and therefore the responsibility of those writing about war must be a commitment to the truth.
When we talk about writing about war, a distinction must be made between literature and journalism, as the objective of journalists is to provide a confirmed account of events and they must attempt not to rewrite reality according to their point of view.
In any event, when a community is a war, it teaches its citizens to hate the enemy, and the writer, as a member of the community, is also subject to this coercion.

 TE Sept 2004: Teaching Literature & Medicine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
My aim in undertaking this project was simple yet challenging: to consider some of the basic issues in medicine — pain, illness, depression, mourning, death-and-dying, doctor-patient relationships, images of the physician — in the light of the humanities as well as the sciences.
In particular, I already sensed that the testimony of literature and art — with us since the Bible and Greek tragedy — would complement the scientific discourse, much as the subjective complements the objective, and that was my target: to address the experiential side of medicine.
In short, I was asking some central questions about a major fact of modern life: the institution of medicine stands today ever more powerfully at the crossroads of life and death, especially in secular society where church and family may count for less than they did in an earlier time.

 Literature and Sexualities - 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)

Students critically examine what it means to acquire and develop a sexual identity (or to have one constructed for you), what it means to have an "accepted" sexuality, a "contested" or invisible one, and how other factors like class, ethnicity, race, and gender affect and contribute to representations of sexual identity in literature.
Writing the Sexual."  It emphasizes the multiple ways in which writing and sexuality converge throughout history and in contemporary everyday life, how writing and the interpretation of writing is envisioned as sexual, and how sex is envisioned as a text that can (actually, must) be read into everyday and extraordinary cultural practices.

 Fall 2004      411 Honors   Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
This seminar for honors students focuses on the relationship between literature and madness.
Drawing upon literature from across many genres (short stories, novels, memoir, plays, poetry) and from secondary critical readings, together we will explore the myriad ways that madness has been understood by society, by individuals, by artists in particular, and we will also tackle the practically mythic relation between madness and creativity.
Such a course cannot possibly hope to be comprehensive-one can't shake the tree of any period, of any genre, without a great number of wonderful, mad writers falling out, and so the nature of our reading will be eclectic and various.
