This course offers students an opportunity to use literature to reflect on their own pursuit of happiness as well as to consider the impediments that might create obstacles to achieving an "enduring" happiness in this pursuit. To contextualize "happiness", students begin the semester with a study of the meaning of "happiness" as represented by a range of interdisciplinary experts. Then, students will read and respond to a variety of literary texts to explore the nuanced nature of "happiness". One of the primary goals of this reading and writing intensive course is to help students to arrive at a deeper understanding of the notion of happiness and to appreciate our own individual search for happiness without discounting the often subjective nature of happiness across the vast range of human experience.
