Registration-related clarification about Spring 2011’s PHRE 476: Blake SeminarNovember 6, 2010
From Professor Jesse:
There has been some confusion over the registrar’s designation of the PHRE 400-level courses for next semester. My 476 Blake seminar was designated as “Senior Seminar,” which really should be used only to refer to our required 475 senior seminar course. That problem should now be fixed. I want to clarify that my course on “William Blake’s Religious Thought” (PHRE 476) is opened to any upper-level (i.e., junior or senior) major or minor in PHRE (in addition to English Literature, Art, and Art History). Contrary to what has appeared on Banner, there also are no pre-requisites for this course–only junior or senior standing.
The description of the course is as follows:
This course takes an interdisciplinary religion, literature, and aesthetics approach to selected works of the English Romantic poet, painter, and engraver William Blake (1757-1827). We will attend to both the visual and verbal dimensions of his works, focusing specifically on their theological aspects. This is a seminar course designed for upper-level majors and minors in PHRE, English Literature, Art, or Art History. There will be very little lecture; the majority of our time together will be spent on individual presentations and seminar discussions based on the assigned readings. Requirements include active class participation, and a research project presented orally and in writing.
Let me know if you have any questions about the course. Thanks!
