2-Unit Course: Other Voices


Other Voices, our 2 unit course co-sponsored by the English Department and the Student Learning Center, is accepting enrollments.

Other Voices is an exciting course that introduces students to the literary studies currently being undertaken by Berkeley faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and community artists interested in issues of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and the formations of diverse, innovative, and emerging literary cultures.

The central aims of the course are to raise student awareness of the role literature has played in shaping the historical debates about multiculturalism and rethink the ways we conceptualize identities in the United States. The course also affirms student experiences, promotes student dialogue and activism, and presents a forum for discussing interactions between diverse subjects, communities, and institutions.

Guest lecturers will come to speak at our Monday 12-1 lectures in The Multicultural Community
Center (Hearst Field Annex D).

There are one-hour discussion sections that will meet on Wednesdays at the same time, from 12-1.

If you know students who might be interested in careers where discussing and teaching literature is important and if they are looking for a fun and interactive 2 unit course, please let them know about Other Voices.
