CCC Offers ‘Leadership in Literature’ Course

 Are there leadership lessons to be learned from Willy Loman, the central character in Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman?” 

 “Leadership in Literature,” a four-credit class that will be offered at Clackamas Community College this fall takes a look at Miller’s classic work and several other stories and plays in a new light. The course examines the nature of leadership by analyzing characters in major literary works.

The class is co-taught by English instructor Amanda Coffey and business instructor Bill Waters. It will be offered Tuesday evenings during fall term. Students may earn either English or business credits for taking the class.

Literature that will be studied in the course includes “Questions of Character” by Joseph L. Badaracco Jr., “Antigone” by Sophocles, “A Man for All Seasons” by Robert Bolt, “The Secret Sharer” by Joseph Conrad, and others.

“The class offers a fresh way to look at literature and a fascinating way to look at leadership,” said Waters.

Tuition and fees for the class are $342.
