ENGL 1102

This course focuses on current conversation surrounding disasters, calamities, and apocalyptic events, both in real life and fictional contexts, moving from the context of global perspectives on the end of the world to local efforts to mitigate apocalyptic events. Through an investigation of current events, popular culture, and local efforts towards sustainability, students will have the opportunity to explore what it means to engage with notions of the apocalypse, how those notions are discussed across multiple genres, and what's being done to mitigate the seemingly inevitable destruction of all humankind. Assignments will include analysis of apocalyptic media, research and creative projects that engage aspects of WOVEN communication, and active collaboration with local sustainability initiatives through the Center for Sustainable Communities in Atlanta.
