Thanks for the insight and sharing of my oh-so-desperate decisions. I am strongly leaning towards HotB as of now. The professor who teaches it has an interesting foot in both worlds: he specializes in middle ages literature and manuscripts, but he also teaches courses in digital media and book technology. This is obviously a class he will know thoroughly and likely enjoy. The Caribbean literature one, while interesting, I can explore on my own a bit, now that I have the list of readings. Obviously this is not the same as studying it in class with discussions from others or a learned professor, but sadly these are the kinds of choices I have to make!
Though once a YA Lit class is offered, my choices will be so much easier.
