Take a service-learning course in the English department! "Homelessness: Literary Representation and Historical Reality" is a late addition to our Fall schedule. Taught by Professor Susan Greenfield, the course explores the literary representation--and lived experience--of homelessness.
For the academic portion of the course, you will read canonical literature about homelessness, including King Lear, The Wrongs of Woman, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Grapes of Wrath, as well as various essays and memoirs by and about homeless people.
The service portion of the course will include meetings and discussions with homeless and formerly homeless people and 30 hours of volunteer work with a relevant service organization.
The course, ENGL 3964 R01, is being held Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM at the Rose Hill Campus.
