Bring Back B.W. Powe's McLuhan-Frye English Course at York University

Please sign in support of restoring the York University English course EN 4004: McLuhan-Frye and maintaining the course EN 4163: Visionary Literature, both taught by Professor B.W. Powe, for the Fall/Winter 2018-2019 academic year.

The McLuhan-Frye course has already been removed from course listings, while Visionary Literature is still currently on the course website but is in danger of also being cancelled.

Due to the longest post-secondary strike in Canadian history, York University has threatened to remove these Fall/Winter 2018-2019 courses early in the summer enrollment period due to initially low enrollment numbers as a direct impact of the strike. The strike has not yet been resolved, so students are hesitant to add courses early. Both of these courses are very popular and have previously filled up to maximum capacity by the late summer.

Please help to gather the attention and understanding of the English department administration at York University. In order to maintain the respected reputation of Canada’s third largest university, it is essential for these academically challenging and inspiring courses to continue being offered.

Both of these excellent courses have been life-changing for past students, and it is our belief that future students deserve to experience the enriching and engaging aspects of these important courses.

If this petition succeeds, both students and faculty will benefit from the continuation of these courses. If administration proceeds with their decision, the academic lives of York's students will be negatively impacted.

Please sign in support of keeping these courses and continuing the legacy of life-changing courses which positively impact York University and its community of students. Thank you dearly for your time and attention.
