ENGL 1301: Can You Feel the Love?

This guide was created for Dr. Brinkman's English 1301: Composition & Rhetoric I, summer 6WI 2023.


In this class, we will be considering how fiction has the power to teach us about human relationships, benefitting them on both a personal and social level. While watching film can broaden our perspectives and help us to become more empathetic, it can also teach us how to improve, evaluate, and reconsider our interpersonal relationships. In particular, film has the potential to demonstrate the power of all sorts of love, and in so doing helps people to enrich their interpersonal relationships, which in turn can improve society.
