10898 ENG3014 Theories and Tech of Lit Study World Wide Web (W) Not Online

“Theories of Literature” is a gateway course designed to introduce students to the theory and practice of contemporary approaches to the academic study of literary and cultural texts. The course will cover many of the most prominent and influential “schools of thought” or critical theories of literature, including New Criticism, structuralism, poststucturalism/deconstruction, psychoanalysis, feminism, sexuality/queer studies, Marxism, new historicism, postcolonial and critical race theory, reader response, and eco-criticism. We will study explanatory texts about the various theories, along with representative texts of theory itself. We will also apply these approaches to literary and cultural texts ranging from canonical works to popular forms (such as film). We will engage with the scholarly debate in literary studies and work toward the construction of an advanced analytical paper in preparation for 4000-level coursework. Students should emerge from this course with the ability to read texts from a variety of different critical perspectives and perform research at an appropriately advanced undergraduate level.
