課程描述

這是門人文、藝術與社會科學強化溝通的課程。如同其他人文學科、藝術及社會科學中著重溝通的課程,它提供學生藉由審慎書寫20頁的作業並修改來磨練寫作能力;同時,透過課堂參與、作業書寫和學生主導的討論,也提供大量的實質口語表達的機會;與寫作助教定期見面對於作業的草稿與修及有助益且必要。由於還有作業的修訂,因此沒有期末考。本課程研究在小說及記敘文形式下小說的用途與分界──傳統和創新、西方和非西方,並且提出針對閱讀不同文化、時代及形式的文本得到的樂趣與意涵。課程尾聲,我們將透過多種不同作品特別討論藝術與戰爭的關係。

課程目標

  • 出勤及課堂參與度(30%)這是門以討論為主的課程,你課堂中積極的出席及參與對於同組及本身的學習成果十分重要。帶著作品到班上,大聲地朗誦出來,激烈的辯論,用心地聆聽,及享受整個過程。對班上討論名單有所貢獻的同學成績將會計算在班級參與度中,且可能要求學生來主導整個討論的流程及班級研討會。若因看病或個人緊急狀況,這堂課你該利用電話、電子郵件或請親自提前通知我,來得到該節你錯過的資訊。每次毫無理由的缺席將會降低你1%的期末成績:二次遲到等同一次缺席。如果你時間上有衝突,如朗誦、負責運動事宜或工作因素,你就不該選這門課。與助教會面的出勤,與無論何種特殊情形下,凱勒.諾娜皆為必讀。
  • 書面報告(第一份報告佔 70%、修訂佔 10%;接著的兩份報告各佔 15%,最後的一份佔 20%)作業繳交日期,開始上課便會訂出作業繳交的日期。如果你需要延長時間(延至下一堂課繳交),必須在繳交日前得到該堂教師的許可。一份作業遲交,從下一堂課開始計算每天將減少三分之一的成績。繳交日前,你必須與該課助教見面來修改第一份作業,也可以修改其他的作業(第四份除外)若是事先與助教見面討論后,一周內修改評完分的作業再送回來,如果修改的成績較高,將可取代原先的成績。作業必須打字或使用Word 軟體輸入,間隔使用雙行間距,邊界要有足夠的留白,連同標題在內,應要留意文法及拼字的使用。

抄襲、剽竊聲明

抄襲對思想的誠實及自由皆為重大傷害。特別班上有些課程需要網路資料搜索,你必須明白怎麼會構成剽竊並避免之。文學系已擬定針對所有剽竊事件的政策和聲明。

剽竊

未告知使用他人智慧作品是嚴重的侵權行為。這是文學系的政策是抄襲的學生該科將得到F的成績,且該科教師需將此一事件送交紀律委員會。所有自教室外的得到的資訊都必須非常清楚地以文字陳列出來,這是最完整的認知。所有想法、論據和直接引用他人作品中的辭彙都必須証明及適當的註明。從其他資料來源所用的引文必須清楚地標示出來,與學生自己的作業作區別。更進一步說明請見麻省理工學院針剽竊認定


Course Description

This is a HASS -CI course. Like other communications-intensive courses in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, it allows students to produce 20 pages of polished writing with careful attention to revision. It also offers substantial opportunities for oral expression, through presentations of written work, student-led discussion, and class participation. The class has a low enrollment that ensures maximum attention to student writing and oral expression; regular meetings with a writing tutor on drafts and revisions are helpful and are required. Because of the revision, there is no final exam. This course investigates the uses and boundaries of fiction in a range of novels and narrative styles - traditional and innovative, western and nonwestern - and raises questions about the pleasures and meanings of verbal texts in different cultures, times, and forms. Toward the end of the term, we will be particularly concerned with the relationship between art and war in a diverse selection of works.


Required Reading

Austen, Jane. Northanger Abbey. Penguin.
Shelley, Mary. Frankenstein. Penguin.
Melville, Herman. Typee. Penguin.
Tolstoy, Leo. "Hadji Murad". Great Short Works. Harper & Row.
Keller, Nora Okja. Comfort Woman. Penguin.
Wilde, Oscar. The Picture of Dorian Gray. Penguin.
Chopin, Kate. The Awakening. Penguin.
Woolf, Virginia. To the Lighthouse. Harcourt Brace.


Course Expectations

  • Attendance and Participation (30 %) This is a discussion course where your active attendance and participation in class are vital to your success and that of the group. Bring your text to class and be prepared to read aloud, debate vigorously, listen, and enjoy. Contributions to the classroom discussion list figure in classroom participation, and students will be asked to lead discussions and classroom workshops as well. If you must miss class because of a medical or personal emergency, you should notify me beforehand of the fact by phone, email, or in person, and get the information you missed. Any unexcused absence deducts a percentage point from your final grade: two latenesses count as one absence. If you have a conflict, like a recitation, sports commitment, or job that meets during this class, you should not take the course. Attendance at meetings with the course tutor and at the special events with Nora Okja Keller is required.
  • Written Work (70 %-First essay and revision 10% each, next two essays 15% each, final essay 20%). Essays are due at the beginning of class on the day assigned. If you need an extension (to the next class period), you must get permission before the paper is due. A paper coming in after the next class loses one third of a grade for each day it is late. You must meet with the course tutor and revise the first essay by the due date and may revise any other (except the last), if you schedule a conference with the course tutor immediately after receiving the graded essay and submit a new essay within a week of getting it back. A revision grade will replace the original grade only if it is higher. Essays must be typed or word-processed, double-spaced, and adequately margined, should include a title, and need to observe the conventions of grammar and spelling.

Statement on Plagiarism

Plagiarism attacks the freedom and integrity of thought. Especially in a class that will depend to some extent on online research, you must know what constitutes plagiarism and avoid it. The Literature Department has formulated this statement and policy for all plagiarism cases

Plagiarism

Use of another's intellectual work without acknowledgement- is a serious offense. It is the policy of the Literature Faculty that students who plagiarize will receive an F in the subject, and that the instructor will forward the case to the Committee on Discipline. Full acknowledgement for all information obtained from sources outside the classroom must be clearly stated in all written work submitted. All ideas, arguments, and direct phrasings taken from someone else's work must be identified and properly footnoted. Quotations from other sources must be clearly marked as distinct from the student's own work. For further guidance see the MIT Web site on plagiarism.
