ENG-220 Regionalisms of the British Isles

The British Isles, covering only approximately 120,000 square miles, have historically been home to numerous geographically defined cultures, traditions, and dialects. Travelers past and present have been quick to note that traversing what Americans would consider a short distance positions one in a new place. This course will explore regionalism as articulated through literature, considering local identity, nationalism, and nostalgia as key forces shaping geographically formed expressions of the diversity of the British Isles. Regions emphasized will vary from semester to semester.(Introduction to Literary Studies) Prerequisites: FYS-101 or FYS-110
