2091G - Special Topics - The Creativity of Madness
This course explores the creativity of madness and the madness of creativity. Starting with an examination of the history of madness and historical and cultural attitudes toward madness, we will address the general equation between madness and creativity through various works of literature and culture as a way of engaging students in the creative (and often chaotic) process of ‘thinking outside of the box’ of accepted cultural, social, and ethical norms of thought and behavior. We will thus explore creativity and of madness as both definitions and symptoms of humanity in order to explore how we often avoid thinking about their more complex nature. We will bring in works and characters primarily from the music and literature to frame the questions and guide conversations. We will approach and assess student comprehension and experience of course material through lectures, tests, reflections, short essays, large and small group discussion, play activities, workshops.

Above all we want students to gain an appreciation of how “play ... is the very essence of thought” and to open themselves to a more compassionate and productive understanding of how madness and creativity are intimately connected – and necessary to the planet’s survival. 3 lecture hours, 0.5 course

3900G - Special Topics in English - Children's Literature and Advertising Culture
Advertising is a central institution in our consumeristic culture, and children are an important but problematic target for the advertising industry: children wield power as potential consumers of toys, foods, and television programs, but lawmakers also seek to protect children from advertising that might compromise their health or values. Children’s literature is situated uneasily within this cultural minefield. The stories we tell children are themselves products, and they are implicated in a merchandizing industry that peddles Anne of Green Gables dolls, Winnie the Pooh plush toys, and Disney princess lunch boxes. Many novels for children foreground these problems by examining the roles played by consumption, advertising, and branding in the formation of identity. In a society where we are increasingly defined by the products we purchase – and are expected to package ourselves as products we can peddle to clients, customers, and employers – children’s literature offers a critical perspective on the distinction between person and product. 3 lecture hours, 0.5 course
