You must always know the past, for there is no real was, there is only is.” 

William Faulkner

Faulkner understood history’s place in writing, and that the passage of time influences one’s own interpretation. In this learning community, students will see how history and literature/rhetoric complement each other. Essentially, literature is a product of its historical context; thus, studying history and English together provides students with a framework from which they can appreciate the intersection of culture and history. Along the way, students will see how history has influenced writing, rhetoric, and the production of images throughout the twentieth century. Students will also learn how to analyze, interpret, and research historical essays and documents. Not only will students learn about history when learning how to read critically, they will learn how to write in a rhetorical fashion from acclaimed and respected authors in history.
