Spies

Course No. LLC 309X  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Katherine Clark

In this seminar we will discuss spying in its many manifestations including the reasons and justifications offered for spying; the different types of spying; the means by which spying is conducted; and whether or not spying is a necessary evil. We will use a variety of texts in the class, non-fiction historical works as well as fictional works. Through a variety of media including film, hypertext, popular culture essays, fiction, and radio programs, we will explore the fascination with spies and what spies represent culturally and historically. Our object is that by the end of the semester we will be better readers of texts and more knowledgeable about issues of identity, deception, and information gathering. Fulfills Humanities/Cultural Studies distribution requirement. Creative Writing Concentration course.
