Courses: Methods of Literary Study (ENGLB250001)

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1254
We will explore the power of language in a variety of linguistic, historical, disciplinary, social, and cultural contexts, focusing on the power of the written word to provide a foundational basis for the critical and creative analysis of literary studies. This course will build on the reading, writing, and interpretive skills honed in 200-level courses and help to broaden our ideas of what texts and language accomplish socially, historically, and aesthetically. Students will thus refine their faculties of reading closely, writing incisively and passionately, asking speculative and productive questions, producing their own compelling interpretations, and listening carefully to the interpretations and insights offered by others.
