Cursusdoelen
In-depth knowledge and understanding of the ways in which cultural, social, intellectual and political issues of the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth century figure in a selection of American literary texts; ability to select and analyse relevant primary and secondary sources and to produce original scholarly work on the topic of the course; ability to identify and apply some of the relevant critical concepts and literary theory to the study of American literature.
Inhoud
This course introduces some of the key literary works of American literature written or set during the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth century (1860s to 1960s). We will study the aesthetic, intellectual, cultural and/or political impact of literary works at their time of publication. Discussion in lectures and seminars will also consider the possible legacies of the texts: how they continue to shape intellectual debates, literary history, and cultural practices in the twenty-first century in America and in the broader field of literatures in English.
