Senior Seminar in Contemporary Literature: “Reckless Libertines”

Terms: 2 (fall and winter)
Grades :  12, PG

This course deals with characters who run counter to the norms and expectations of their communities, primarily (though not exclusively) expectations regarding sexuality and gender. Through our readings and discussions, we will aim to better understand the basis of social expectations, the nature of individuality and freedom within these constraints, and the human experience of those involved. In doing so, we will ideally be able to better approach similar topics within our own community here at Peddie and in the world at large.
