Schedule for Spring 2020

ENG 290 - LiteraryTheory/CulturalStudies

Course Description:
This cornerstone course provides an introduction to key concepts and developments in contemporary literary theory, from the "linguistic turn" to deconstruction, new historicism, and beyond. Students in the course also will meet the interdisciplinary challenges posed by "cultural studies" as a new mode of analysis that can be brought to bear not only on literature, but on other cultural "texts" such as films, television, the Internet, music, "found artifacts," school textbooks, marketing campaigns, and many other products of high or popular culture. In the course of wrestling with these various perspectives, students will be exposed to a range of classical, modern, and postmodern contributions to the most essential and heated debates in the humanities today. This course will also train students in the essentials of research methods and information literacy in the discipline. 3 credits
