30:145 CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE Winter term Tue/Thur 10:10-11:30

This survey introduces students to a rich variety of fiction, poetry, and drama in English, with focus on particular nations or cultural themes. Each section of the course is unique and is designed for students to learn the vocabulary of literary studies. The course emphasizes writing skills, with at least three essay assignments, and students will receive help, wherever needed, in planning, developing and writing effective essays.

30:151 UNIVERSITY WRITING Winter term Tue/Thur 17:30-19:00

This course introduces students to the different kinds of scholarly writing and reading that university demands of them. Students will learn basic techniques in criticism, essay evaluation, and critique of their own work. University Writing is not a remedial course, and students are assumed to be competent (though not necessarily highly proficient) in format, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, simple paragraphing, and development of a basic thesis statement. Some time may be spent in class, however, on the elementary principles of good writing, at the discretion of the instructor. There may also be some time spent on the history of the English language. This writing intensive course is designed for all university students who wish to improve their compositional skills.

Brandon University is committed to equity, welcomes diversity, and hires on the basis of merit. All qualified individuals who may contribute to the diversification of the University, especially women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous persons, racialized persons, and persons of all sexual orientations and genders are encouraged to apply. Canadian citizens and permanent residents are given priority. Evidence of citizenship must be provided.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and barrier-free work environment. This starts with the hiring process. If you require an accommodation during any phase of the evaluation process, please indicate it in your cover letter. All information received related to an accommodation is kept confidential. To ensure this employment opportunity is accessible to all interested individuals, this posting is available in an alternate format upon request.
