Field Fragmentation and Non-Major Literature Courses
Gebhardt, Richard C.
CEA Forum, v36 n1 Win-Spr 2007
Discussions of English department identity and mission more often center on the undergraduate major curriculum than on classes for general-studies and other non-major students. In such courses, though, educators have an opportunity to touch the intellectual lives of far more people than they do in courses for majors. The author argues in this article that English departments and their faculty should give more thought to classes and teaching for undergraduates who take a few literature courses and who do so for reasons quite different from those which motivate English majors.
