Section 1: Tuesday and Thursday 9:30-10:45 AM
Professor: Andrea Wolfe
This course will survey American authors and literary movements from 1860 to the present. It will include texts from a broad range of genres as well as major and minority traditions. Subtitled “American Texts, American Contexts,” the course will focus on methods for reading selected texts in appropriate historical, cultural, political, critical, and theoretical contexts. Students will be evaluated based on class participation, reading quizzes, a series of short papers, and a final exam.
