LIT 246 Literary Periods II (After 1848): (subtitle)

This course focuses on a major literary period in a literary tradition after 1848. Students who take this course will learn the basic historical contours of the period of focus, as well as the social, intellectual, and political contexts of the works studied. This course should not focus solely on one author, group, or movement alone, but should consider the period broadly, exposing students to both canonical and non-canonical works and contextualizing the period within the larger historical fabric. Topics may include Victorian literature, modernism, postmodernism, or postcolonial literature. Readings beyond Europe and North America will be included in order to show the differing transnational literary manifestations of the period.
