Course Continuity

Greetings, my esteemed students.

We are going through difficult times, particularly for the continuity of the work we are doing in class. It is less than ideal for us to not meet and continue building upon our knowledge and gained analytical skills. It is therefore important for us to continue thinking about our class material. For this reason, here are the following assignments and rescheduled work.

1. When we meet next, we will continue discussing the Flannery O’Connor stories as originally planned, including an accelerated drafting process for the essay.

2. I suggest you finish reading the stories and accompanying materials and start thinking about (a.k.a. “writing”) your essay.

3. For inspiration and reference I recommend the following films about the South:
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
The Color Purple
Driving Miss Daisy
Gone with the Wind
Fried Green Tomatoes
O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Hope to see you all soon.
