In conjunction with students' Campus and Community Engaged Learning (CEL) projects, this writing intensive course examines the fraught status of British literature as it both defines and challenges the responsibility we feel towards others. Literary meditations on the limits of social connection offer the class as an occasion to reflect on the terms of our activity in the community. Conversely, students draw on their CEL projects to generate fresh perspectives on British literary history. Particular attention is given to student writing as a tool for exploring the connection between our activities inside and outside the classroom. Readings extend from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century and may include texts by Shakespeare, Hobbes, Defoe, Swift, Behn, Haywood, Austen, Wordsworth, Shelley, and Dickens.
