Literature and Human Values: Race, Age, Gender     1015-1215 MTWRF

We will examine literary and cinematic works that foreground issues of race, age, and gender during the coming-of-age process. Our goals will include understanding more fully how and why artists from various backgrounds respond to these issues as they do, and how characters respond to pressures pushing them toward conformity and maturity. (General Education)
