FYS 10419 - Section 01: What is Catholic Literature? (CRN 29387)

Course Description:
?What is Catholic Literature?? is a one-credit, discussion-based course focused on how a writer?s faith journey finds expression through the making of literature, as well as how work written by writers who identify as Catholic can serve as aids to a reader?s spiritual and intellectual growth.Through the close reading and discussion of short stories, poetry, and memoir, and through conversations with guest scholars and artists (via Zoom), we will discuss the ways that Catholic writers have sought to contend with issues of war, racism, the death penalty, and sexual identity. Special emphasis will be placed on the role literary works have in reinforcing, shaping, and, sometimes, challenging our spiritual beliefs.Readings will include works by Saint John Paul II and Jacques Maritain, fiction writers Flannery O'Connor, Toni Morrison, and Phil Klay, and nonfiction writers Richard Rodriguez, Sister Helen Prejean, and Kaya Oakes, among others.
