This summer, Dr. Kevin Gooding will offer two summer courses for Honors.
Salem Witch Trials, HONR 412, will be offered as an online version of Dr. Gooding’s popular regular Honors course, and will pursue interdisciplinary approaches to this fascinating moment in American history.
Summer Guided Reading, HONR 285, will cover the topic “Un-silenced Voices.” Dr. Gooding describes it as follows: “In any society, there are certain “voices” that dominate societal discourse. In this course, we will be listening to some American voices that have been silenced in the past by the dominant voicesformer slaves, labor agitators, immigrants, witnesses to the turbulence of the Civil Rights Era. Five of the six voices to which we will listen are women’s voices, their gender contributing to their silencing. We will listen as they describe their realities and place in a society that has attempted their silencing.
