ENGL 308 - The Novel from 1900 to Now
The Novel from 1900 to Now
While we read works of literature as fiction, we also see it as mediating and reflecting certain truths about our lived experience. This course explores, through the lens of 20th century literary criticism and theory, the relationship between the novel and its borders, or texts and their contexts. Each novel will be considered in light of its mediation of socio-political and cultural concerns; this includes themes such as literature and philosophy, literature and science, and literature and identity. NOTE: Students cannot receive credit for both ENGL 308 and ENGL 3308.
Prerequisite: Any 200 level English course or permission of the Dean
