Section 1: Mondays 6:30-9:10 PM   

Professor: Emily Rutter
This course is designed to introduce graduate students to literary research strategies and methodologies. Students will become familiar with the foundational elements of literary scholarship; current theoretical and institutional trends in literary studies; the resources available through Bracken Library and elsewhere; and the sociocultural value of studying English in particular and the humanities more generally. By the end of the course, students will have produced a body of scholarly work that reflects their own critical interests and commitments.
