NCC Professor Chris Japely Receives NEH Award to Teach American Literature Course in Spring 2013

Consider taking American Literature in Spring semester 2013! (English 221, CRN 3220)

This 3-credit course meets on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.

American Literature includes a close examination of work of American “Transcendentalists” Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Margaret Fuller. The class also will cover Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the novel that informed the U.S. citizenry of the abuses of slavery while that horrific institution was fully functioning.

Professor Christine Japely, the course instructor, was a 2012 recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) award to study in Concord, Mass., with scholars of American Transcendentalism and other community college professors from across the country.

(Note: American Literature is an English elective which fulfills many four-year college’s 200 level literature requirement.)
