The term "Discovery" can be applied to many aspects of our life. We make a discovery about a person or about a literary piece when we come to see a new significance of an event, or when we obtain a new perception about a human reaction. Upon making such a discovery, we may feel surprised, happy, upset, disturbed, or even threatened, depending on the content. In this course, different professors will lecture on the theme of "Discovery" from both literary and non-literary perspectives. You are strongly encouraged to express your views in class as well as on our special online forum.
