Prerequisite: Open only to senior English majors and minors and English/creative writing majors. During this fall term course, a student under the supervision of an advisor will prepare her proposal and annotated bibliography for her senior thesis in the spring term. She will select a topic and line of inquiry that matches her strengths and interests. She will have the option to 1) re-envision and develop an earlier paper in ways that lead her into new areas of inquiry or 2) start an new project entirely. Each student should get departmental approval for her proposal by November 1. An annotated critical bibliography will be due by the end of the semester. This course will be graded P/CR/NC.
