Megan Peiser deposited Syllabus: ENG 4980 Studies in Major Authors: Anonymous in the group LLC Restoration and Early-18th-Century English on MLA Commons 1 year, 1 month ago
This syllabus for Major Authors: Anonymous serves as one of the capstone seminar options for our English Majors and Minors. In overhauling our curriculum to make the English BA represent more literature, we removed Single-Author-Named courses & replaced them with Major Authors. Each faculty who teach this course make an argument for the various and multiplicity of what we might define as a “Major Author” depending on their expertise. This first iteration of our course highlights the history of anonymous authorship, and culminates in work with Special Collections to spotlight the anonymously produced work housed on our own campus.
