ENG 3230: British Texts, Mid-19th to 21st Century (Summer 19)
ENG 3430/WGS 3200: Women and Literature Survey (Spring 19)
This website offers an exploration of Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy; conceived as a reader guide to the trilogy, this was a semester-long project created in Fall 2018 by nine English majors for their ENG 4110: Literature Practicum course at Wright State University. Within each page of the website, the students provide diverse and unique approaches toward reading Atwood’s trilogy. Working in three groups of three, each group focused on one of the three novels while collaborating with team members from the other groups. Each group created a soundtrack to accompany the novels, telling the story through music. They thought this was an interesting way to explore literary analysis and narrative, and felt it would help tie together each section of the website. The guide also includes book summaries, character profiles, alternate endings and storyboard illustrations, surveys and video interviews, and a five-episode podcast, Calling on the Bees. Students were given complete control over the design and creation of the website and freedom to make any digital components that would help readers engage with major themes found in the trilogy.
