A course list I'd like to teach:
Call it a seminar, give it an institutional marker, maybe 'English 498'.
And for the term I teach it, 'English 498: English Love-Lost'.
I 'own' a course like this. It has my name incised into its marble.
And I'll never be teaching it. Our system will have me at 'English Blah-Blah: The Utilitarian Justification For Studying Language At All'
Higher Education begging tuppence from a skinflint.
A wet sheet hung out against dreadful windchill.
