An exciting course about William Blake from Professor Jesse…
Dear PHRE majors and minors,
My PHRE 476 seminar on William Blake’s religious thought is open for registration for Fall semester. The open course listing for PHRE courses does not include the name of the seminar but if you click on the “476 seminar” listing, you’ll find the correct information for the class. Here’s a description:
PHRE 476: Seminar in Philosophy and Religion: William Blake’s Religious Thought
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 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 passages. Requirements include active class participation, and an interpretive research project presented orally and in writing.
We’ll meet on Mondays from 6:00 to 8:50 p.m.
If you have any questions about the course, just drop me an email!
