Reading, evaluation, and discussion of selected writers, works, or literary topics. May be taken twice for a maximum of six credit hours.

This course will focus on the many ways that WWII has been portrayed in and influenced different literary genres. Texts will include the Graphic novel Maus, by Art Speigelman, the short story collection Berlin Stories by Christopher Isherwood, the satiric novel Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, and The Science Fiction / War Novel mash-up Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. Students will analyze themes such as the rise of Nazism and Nazi Extermination Camps, the absurdity of war, and the individual’s duty to society in wartime. Requirements include completion of reading journals, quizzes, two four-page papers and two essay exams.

The University of New Orleans International Summer School program has a mandatory class attendance policy. All students are required to attend class for all morning classes and any required afternoon and/or weekend fields trips and lectures. No unexcused absences are allowed. However, LFU students who have to miss a UNO class due to LFU examinations in the first two weeks of our program, can receive one excused absence for this. Any further unexcused absences will result in an academic penalty. Each faculty member determines the penalty for missed classes. Most professors deduct a letter grade for each additional missed class day. For details, please refer to your course syllabi, which will be distributed on the first day of class.
