The first class sets up the rest of the course: how to retrieve the student data files for the course, how to submit homework electronically on Blackboard, and an introduction to the Adobe Connect software that allows us to have live online classes. The other three special classes are for taking your course exams. They will be offered face-to-face on the Portland campus.

You must register within the first 2 weeks of the semester. When you register you will be able to choose the location for the exam. You will then be notified who to contact to set up the exam time.

If you do not have the software and own a PC (not a MAC), we highly recommend you get the book at the USM Book Store so you can get the trial version of software. If you already have the required software (MS Excel 2013 for Microsoft Windows) you do not have to buy the book from the USM Book Store. (It is often much less expensive online). If you do not have a PC and plan on using the University computers to complete your work, you do not need the software, therefore you do not have to buy the book from the USM Book Store. The USM Computer Store has 2 other options for obtaining Excel 2013. 1. For $72.00 you can get a subscription to Office 365. This is a 4-year subscription for one user and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, & Outlook. You are allowed to install it on 2 PC's. 2.

If you want to use a MAC to do your work, you need 4 things: 1. MAC operating system Mountain Lion 2. Virtual Machine software (most MACs come with BootCamp which will do the trick and there are others available, even a free version on the Internet). 3. MS Excel 2013 for Microsoft Windows. If you buy the book from the USM Book Store the software will be included as a 180 day trial version. 4. Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8, which you will need to purchase unless you already have it.

Jul 8 - Aug 15
Study of an author, a literary form, a sequence of texts, or specific area or genre of creative writing, or some other special topic not included in the regular curriculum. Prerequisite(s): To be determined for each course. (Pass/Fail Option) Every Year. CR 4. Sabine Klein    Class Number: 64484

Class Notes: When Art Spiegelman published "Maus I," the idea of combining a written memoir with comic art was mostly unheard of, except among comic aficionados who were familiar with an earlier work, Will Eisner¿s "Contract with God." Since then, memoirs, autobiographies, and biographies have become increasingly available in the form of the graphic novel. In this class, we will study this development by reading recent graphic memoirs and biographies, although we will also consider the rise of the genre in the 20th century. We will explore how life writing in graphic novels combines words with iconic images and other aspect of comics to re-create its subjects¿ lives. In addition to enabling students to further their analytical reading and seeing skills, this course will allow students to engage with various forms of online-communication, including, but not limited to, social media and blogs.

Forty-four million Americans identify themselves as being of Irish extraction in the 1990 U.S. Census.

In this course, students will be introduced to the Irish immigrant experience in the U.S. from the colonial period to the present, through the works of artists of Irish descent. Prerequisite: ENG 102W CR 3. Kay L Retzlaff    Class Number: 62517

ENG 310 - UMPI Studies in Poetry: Confessional PoetryONLINE
Jul 7 - Aug 15
Prerequisite: Eng 151. Consideration of the theory and practice of poetry, through reading and analysis. Focus varies and may include poetry of a particular genre (sonnet, lyric), subject matter (war, political, pastoral), or time and place (metaphysical poetry). CR 3. Melissa M Crowe    Class Number: 61948

Class Notes: What is confession? In this class we will pose multiple answers to this question. Of course, confession is the name given to a particular school of poetry written primarily in the late 1950¿s and early 1960¿s¿W.D. Snodgrass, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, and Anne Sexton. But critics have never agreed on what characterizes the mode¿taboo subject matter, a speaker who is also the poet, some set of formal transgressions or degree of intensity? Even the simplest answer to our question, then, bears interrogation.
