NOTE: This class uses a short story that learners MUST read *BEFORE* our class meeting. If you would prefer that your learner read the story during class time, please search for the "mini camp" version of this same class on Outschool, or for "Story & Symbol 101A," which is only the first half of the class and does not use the short story, whatsoever. Language is symbol and symbols are language. One cannot exist without the other, in some sense. Plumbing the depths of language can lead us to...
Before committing to a graduate degree in English, I studied eight other languages in school, and far more on my own time. I've always loved and been professionally active in local fine arts communities, but my favorite class in college was Discrete Mathematics. These things might all seem oddly disconnected, but they are unified by the power of symbol: in translating between a piece of art and history, or from language to numbers, or from Hebrew to French, one is merely passing a parcel of human understanding from one audience to another. The alchemy of story and symbol have been my longest love, and I am delighted to share this magic with eager learners.
1 file available upon enrollmentThe story I ask learners to read before class ("Symbols and Signs" by Vladimir Nabokov) is available to read online on The New Yorker's website. I will provide the story in a PDF via Outschool upon enrollment. Additionally, after the class meets I will provide learners with a couple pages of notes covering what was discussed, for easy reference and review.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Ahead of this class, learners will be asked to read Vladimir Nabokov's "Symbols and Signs." The story centers around a family whose adult son suffers from a mental illness, and it mentions a suicide attempt. It is written in the language of the 1940's, and, as such, might feel insensitive to many modern readers. In class, we will not have much discussion about the suicide attempt, but we will be talking about Nabokov's symbolic use of this particular mental illness.
