Penn Summer Session I and our 11-Week Summer Session courses will be offered remotely. Currently, Summer Session II is scheduled to run on campus, as planned. The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is fluid and being monitored closely. Please check back periodically for updates. Should there be any changes to the policy that impacts our decision to hold courses this summer, we are committed to providing timely updates to enrolled students via email. Should any of these programs be cancelled, students will receive a full refund of program fees at that time.

Our campus task force is monitoring the situation daily and making active decisions as we receive new information. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our campus community. You can stay updated with all developments on Penn’s special coronavirus webpage.

Course Description: 

The purpose of this course is to present a variety of narrative genres and to discuss and illustrate the modes whereby they can be analyzed.  We will be looking at shorter types of narrative: short stories, novellas, and fables, and also some extracts from longer works such as autobiographies.  While some works will come from the Anglo-American tradition, a larger number will be selected from European and non-western cultural traditions and from earlier time periods.  The course will thus offer ample opportunity for the exploration of the translation of cultural values in a comparative perspective.
