a list for friday: graduate courses I won’t be taking

In addition to all the really interesting courses I’m looking at, here are a few—all of them actual options—that wlll NOT be part of my graduate studies.

Garbage in Gotham: The Anthropology of Trash

Yiddishisms in the 20th Century

Plagues in History

Queer Colonial Latin America (I know grad studies get more specific, but this is ridiculous)

The U.S. and the World, 1790 – 1914 (…..and here we have the other end of the spectrum. I’m sure it won’t be a problem to cover this thoroughly in three hours once a week.)  

Theologies of Martyrdom

English Handbells

Sports in America

Caribbean Literature (There is some?)

Any class that requires reading “The Last of the Mohicans” for what would be my 5th time

Disaster, Death & Madness

Studies in Genocide

The Seminar of the Damned
