Castaways and Survivors - 32986 - FYS 100 - 0
Why are we fascinated by tales of shipwrecked sailors, island castaways, plane-crash survivors? What puposes are served by stories that ask us to imagine being separated from family and friends, fending for ourselves in a hostile environment, renegotiating social rules, and shifting our attention from the niceties of modern life to the demands of physical survival? And what can we learn from such tales that is relevant to our own survival challenges as first-year students in an unfamiliar environment? This course will provide an occasion for thinking and related questions through a selective survey of castaway literature produced over the last four hundred years or so. We will also work on crucial college skills: critical reading, writing, oral communication, and collaboration.
