001 Speculative Fiction: Fantasy
Wizards, vampires, fairies, and the Chosen One – these figures are no longer confined to a genre ghetto but have instead moved to the mainstream. This course examines the roots of the fantasy genre in novels such as Dracula and The Lord of the Rings and considers how the tropes of the genre have been reproduced and transformed by authors like J.K. Rowling and Neil Gaiman. We will examine the continuing appeal of stories about magic, whether they involve supernatural intrusions, visits to the realm of faerie, or extraordinary powers hidden in apparently ordinary places.
G. Ceraldi
2074F 001 Mystery and Detective Fiction
Mystery stories explore matters of life and death. They engage problems involving the law, justice, and morality. They address fundamental questions of identity and agency. This course introduces students to the critical study of popular mystery and detective fiction from a range of historical periods and national contexts.
M. Jones
2075F 001 Cultures of Blood: The Contemporary Gothic S. Bruhm
2091F 001 Special Topics - Girls on Fire: Constructions of Girlhood in Young Adult Dystopian Fiction
cross-listed with Women's Studies 2211F)

Many YA dystopian novels published recently feature strong female protagonists who openly rebel against the totalitarian societies they live in. In this course, we will consider how the recent spate of Young Adult dystopian fiction simultaneously subverts and affirms gendered expectations facing many young women in the 21st century.
M. Green-Barteet
2091G 001 Special Topics - The Creativity of Madness (cross-listed with Music 3860B)
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.
J. Faflak/B. Younker
2092F 001 Special Topics - The Many Faces of Harry Potter
This course will examine the Harry Potter series in relation to the multiple genres that it draws on, including the gothic novel, detective fiction, fantasy, adventure, and even the dystopian novel. We will read all seven books alongside other novels and short stories that illustrate the generic conventions Rowling is working with. There will also be opportunity to consider the translation of the series into film.
G. Ceraldi
2096F 001 Special Topics - Winter is Coming: A Game of Thrones
Like most universities, Western has a coat of arms: two Lions rampant double queued issuant Ermine Ducally crowned Gold; in base a Stag trippant of the second; on a Chief of the third a Sun Rising Gules. This looks like a composite of several sigils from George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire (our heraldic device is alarmingly close to that of Joffrey Baratheon), but then the eye falls on our motto: Veritas et Utilitas, Truth and Usefulness. What could be less true or useful than fiction, especially fantasy fiction? The aim of this course is to earn its place in Western’s coat of arms. Our emblem is not the Baratheon stag, or Lannister lions, or Martell rising sun, but the one Western places “in Chief”: an Open Book proper edged and Clasped Or. We shall go deep into Martin’s books and deep into their historical sources to find both veritas and utilitas.

3315E 001 Disenchanted Chaucer: Authority and Literature in Medieval England (NEW!)
The Middle Ages are often, and correctly, characterized as deeply conservative. Faith in the authority of secular rule, domestic hierarchies and ecclesiastical structures dominated personal and social ideologies. In late medieval England, however, the crown was beholden to the counsel and consent of competing political interests, the household was fashioned according to idealized and practical models at odds with one another, and the church was torn by both theological and financial controversies Poets of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries recognized the competing impulses of their age and produced a wide variety of literature which critiqued, challenged and, at times, attempted to support the status quo. This course will explore some of the most compelling literature written in English, although our special focus will be on the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, his contemporaries and immediate successors. In order to study Middle English literature you must be able to read Middle English, so we will also study the grammar, pronunciation and rhythms of Middle English in its many forms.

3320G 001 Dangerous Desire in the Renaissance (NEW!) M. Bassnett

3332F 001 Money in Renaissance Drama (NEW!) J. Purkis
3337E 001 Shakespeare and the Drama of his Age (NEW!)
Shakespeare wrote at the birth of the English-language professional theatre. With the advent of paying customers, it was suddenly possible to earn a living as a professional actor or professional playwright – or in Shakespeare’s case, both. But Shakespeare didn’t write his plays in a vacuum. He was one of a constantly-evolving group of playwrights – friends and rivals – who learned from each other even as they competed for audiences. This year-long course sets Shakespeare’s drama alongside the drama of his fellow playwrights. The reading is not yet finalized, but is likely to include The Merchant of Venice and Marlowe’s The Jew of MaltaThe Taming of the Shrew and Fletcher’s The Tamer TamedRomeo and Juliet and Ford’s ’Tis Pity She’s a WhoreThe Winter’s Tale and Heywood’s A Woman Killed with Kindness; and The Tempest and Massinger’s The Renegado. Students who have already taken English 3227E are welcome to enroll.

3351G 001 Romantic Revolutions (NEW!) M. Mazur
3361F 001 Sherlock Holmes and the Fiction of Detection (NEW!)
This course studies the detective figure in nineteenth-century literature and culture, including the legacy of specific literary figures and how they have influenced derivative multimedia content today. Possible topics include: the science of deduction; evidence and forensic practices; panopticism and the society of surveillance; the role of the detective in modernizing police work; and, the concomitance between Gothic and sensation fiction and the clinical and forensic recognition of specific psycho-sexual disorders. We will also address questions of race, class, and gender where the literary detective has been used to advance specific political and polemical ideologies, all while exploring literary criminology as an interdisciplinary field that bridges critical cultural and literary analysis with criminal profiling. The course will also address subsequent film, television, and graphic novel adaptations of iconic characters and the real-world crimes of late nineteenth-century that helped shape the fiction of detection and expand public interest in crime, including those committed by Jack the Ripper, H.H. Holmes and his “Murder Castle,” as well as the “Lambeth Poisoner” Dr. Thomas Neill Cream, among others.

3480G 001 Topics in American Literature - Reading America Now (NEW!) K. Stanley
3490G 001 (formerly 3666FG) - American Drama
This course will focus on the home in US drama. The living room is perhaps the most ubiquitous of settings in American drama, but it is a complex space, a battleground upon which larger conflicts in American culture are staged. Through our observations of plays such as Death of a SalesmanOur TownA Raisin in the Sun, and Hamilton, we will ask such questions as: how does the home define the concepts of work and leisure, male and female, old and new, poor and rich, foreign and domestic, public and private, comfort and danger? How are larger national ideologies (for example, the American dream or the concept of race) articulated through the home? How is the nation a home? Finally, how do different artistic movements (such as realism and expressionism) and genres (such as the comedy, the living room drama, and the musical) approach these issues differently? Coursework will include presentations, two essays, and a final exam.
A. MacLean
3571G 001 Be/Longing: Global Literature in Canada (NEW!)
Where is “here” for writers of migrant and diasporic heritages living in Canada? How might writing from “elsewhere” reshape individual and collective understandings of what it means to be Canadian? Canada’s official Multiculturalism Act is not new, yet the trend of interest in awarding and consuming literary works by migrant and diasporic writers has risen sharply only recently. Why? Is “multiculturalism” still a useful framework for understanding this trend or Canada’s identity? This course will study a rich variety of answers to these and other questions in selected works by Nino Ricci, Guillermo Verdecchia, Dionne Brand, M. NourbeSe Philip, Rohinton Mistry, Anita Rau Badami, David Chariandy, Kim Thuy, and Rawi Hage. We will attend to the literariness of these works, compare them to answers in other art forms, and contextualize them in selected readings in current scholarship (e.g., studies of diaspora, immigration, citizenship, trauma, globalization, neoliberalism, critical multiculturalism, and critical race studies).
D. Pennee
3580F 001 (formerly 3777FG) Topics in Canadian Literature - Creativity and the Local
A Community Engaged Learning Course. This course explores the rich literary cultures of Southwestern Ontario. Through Community Engaged Learning projects, field trips to local cultural sites, and guest speakers, students will learn how creativity grows out of, interacts with and transforms this place, and will draw on their own creativity to support and contribute to local culture. Reaching back to the Regionalist movement in literature, performance, and visual art of the 1970s and extending to the present moment, readings, lectures, and activities will help students think about how local literature (and the institutions and activities that emerge from it) accesses the public and builds communities, relates people to the environment and landscape in which they live, connects the local to national and transnational cultures, retrieves and revalues hidden stories and histories, and represents a diversity of voices and values.

4360G 001 Seminar in Nineteenth-Century Literature – Weird Science: Representations of the Supernatural in Late-Victorian Fiction C. Keep
4371F 530 Seminar in Twentieth-Century British and Irish Literature (Brescia)
This seminar will consider twentieth-century English and American literature encounter with modernity through the vibrancy and variety of the city.  Literary tropes established in the nineteenth century are altered and adapted to the changing urban environment, but continuities abound and such tropes mediate our experience of "the city". We will read several texts (Simmel, le Corbusier, de Certeau, and others) that discuss aspects of the city both in its imagined form, its planning, and in its lived experience alongside literature, mostly fiction but some poetry and film as well, that will inform our understanding of how urban space is represented, mediated, and experienced in the twentieth-century.
