ENG 261 001 American Lit. Waters
HIS 172 005 U.S. History II Culp

This Western Civilization I and World Literature pairing will focus on war and warriors. We will read from numerous personal accounts of soldiers-letters, memoirs, diaries, poetry, fiction seeking to examine war from the authentically personal voices of those who've experienced it. The course is particularly welcoming to veterans, whose voices and recent experience are invited to contribute to and even help shape the curriculum. We hope that these voices will help bring a greater authenticity and life to the course.
