A study of texts from the Romantic period (roughly 1770 to 1830). Formal and political innovations by authors such as William Blake, Jane Austen, William Wordsworth, the Shelleys, and John Keats that helped create “the spirit of the age” will be analyzed.

Cross-cultural and diachronic consideration of art and art-making in human societies. The arts of hunter-gatherers, simple farmers, and complex societies – today and in the past – are examined in comparative perspective. The ethnography and archaeology of visual arts, music, dance, and body art are brought to bear on the question: is art a human universal?

Building on the knowledge and skills acquired in Business Writing I, this course will require students to further develop their writing skills in specific contexts for specific audience needs, interests and abilities. The course emphasizes an awareness of audience, considering purpose, culture (including Indigenous culture) and abilities, and develops suitable skills and techniques in the processes of drafting, revising, editing, and documenting sources in a business context through memos, letters, email, and research reports. The course will also require students to develop a working knowledge of relevant word processing applications.
