SCAN 215: Madness, Myth and Murder
From contemporary crime novels and TV thrillers, to vampire stories, to Vikings and trolls, to early twentieth century Gothic tales, Scandinavian literatures are full of exciting avenues for scholarly exploration. This survey course focuses (broadly) on the achievements of major Scandinavian writers and filmmakers from 1850 to today. As much as possible we will favor the thematic over the chronological, and this thematic investigation will be focused on issues of madness, murder, and myth. As such, our reading (and viewing) will investigate a broad range of Scandinavian cultural aspects, historical and contemporary, in order to offer a representative sample of Scandinavian literature.
All texts assigned will be in English, and any previous knowledge of Scandinavian culture or languages is not expected. Significant emphasis will be placed on acquiring and practicing skills of critical, close reading as well as on the development of good academic writing. This course satisfies the General Education requirement for a Literature and the Arts course.
Questions should be directed to Germanic@illinois.edu

AIS 490/590: Indigenous Performance & Creative Process.
Harjo MW 4:00 ‐ 6:20
This course will focus on two performance events: a Hawaiian hula which investigates context, structure, and the merging of poetry, dance, and music; and, a Mvskoke stomp dance, with lyrics and stories included in and around the performance. The course is based on the premise that Indigenous performance and creative processes of poetry, music, and dance are a natural fusion.
We encourage students in performing and visual arts and creative writing to consider this course that focuses on performance and craft as practiced in the Indigenous world. The course is open by permission to advanced undergraduates and graduate students (contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
