Law Through Literature, ENG 3401

I leveraged my long-standing interests in human rights, constitutional protections, and jurisprudence to design and teach a syllabus for Law Through Literature, ENG3401 using only public domain or open culture readings, including Herman Melville’s Billy Budd, A Sailor; Franz Kafka’s The Trial, E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India, and Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother and Homeland. I encouraged students to view our class through the same lenses that we employed to understand the issues, influence, and shared culture of law and literature.
