ENGL 4919 Advanced Topic Seminar: Forgotten Chapters in Boston's Literary History (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This experimental course is linked to an exhibition with the same name that will run in the spring and summer of 2012 at the Boston Public Library, the Massachusetts Historical Society and Boston College. Each of the "forgotten chapters" will deal with a writer, editor, genre, or event in the rich literary history of Boston between 1790 and 1860. Students will help design the exhibition by researching topics and finding objects (books, periodicals, manuscripts, images) that will help convey ideas to viewers. Open to English majors, American Studies minors, and others motivated by irresistible enthusiasm.
