DLCL 1: CSN Undergraduate Colloquium (ENGLISH 1)

This colloquium is intended for undergraduates who are interested in the history and theory of the novel, and who would like to attend the Center for the Study of the Novel's (CSN) annual conference. Before the conference, students will meet with CSN's graduate student staff, to read and discuss a small number of key texts by participating scholars, whose presentations students will then attend. After the conference, the colloquium will meet again, to discuss both the readings and conference papers, and explore their broader implications for the study of the novel. Attendance at both meetings of the colloquium, and at least one panel at the conference, is required for course credit.

DLCL 122: Medieval Manuscripts, Digital Methodologies

Medieval Studies is entering a phase of digital abundance. In the last seven years, more medieval material has been put online than has ever been available for study at any point in the past. How can we engage with the growing mass of digitized material available to us? How does this sudden access impact the work we do, the types of questions we ask, the connections we make, and the audiences we write for?nnIn this course, we will examine and evaluate digital medieval resources and software that has been created for interacting with those resources. Students will have the opportunity to design and create an innovative project based on medieval primary sources held at Stanford, applying current digital methods in the analysis and presentation of those resources.

DLCL 152A: DLCL Film Series: Nature (DLCL 354A)

Join us this Autumn quarter for our exploration of the theme "Nature," which will look at the representation of the natural world, animals, and landscape in international film. From Arnold Fanck's "The Holy Mountain," to Verónica Llinás' "Dog Lady," and Disney's recent "Zootopia," we will discuss the roles and representation of wildness and wilderness in cinema. Documentaries "Rivers and Tides" and "Chasing Ice" will allow us to discuss which media best enable us to perceive natural systems and illustrate our dependence on them, especially in the era of climate change. Comparing the grotesque insects of "Microcosmos" to the exquisite aerial views of "Samsara" will open a conversation about the role of technology in representing and understanding nature in film. Finally, we will finish the series with Terrence Malick's "Thin Red Line" and Apichatpong Weerasethakul's "Uncle Boonmee," which offer unique interpretations of how humans live within and without nature's rules.

Finally, we will finish the series with Terrence Malick's "Thin Red Line" and Apichatpong Weerasethakul's "Uncle Boonmee," which offer unique interpretations of how humans live within and without nature's rules. Discussions will focus on analyzing the relationships between man and nature, nature and technology, and landscape and film, with special attention to issues around technology, gender, race, and class, as well as the different ways that film has represented nature across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and time.nnAll screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films.
