20th Century American Literatu

Course Description

Twentieth-century American literature is a multifaceted, complex topic that explores themes including a burgeoning capitalistic structure, a new and increasing urban space, the shrinking of the world as it deals with two separate world wars, and the troublesome history of its own political past. Explore two major literary movements of the 20th century: modernism and postmodernism. Gain an introduction to a variety of theoretical, cultural and contextual frameworks, and discuss selected readings through these lenses. Respond to these literatures critically, thoughtfully and in a way that addresses their place in our increasingly complex world.
