ENGL 8836 Media, Culture, Narrative (Fall: 3 )
This course proposes to provide a seedbed of common readings and questions for graduate students interested in U.S. literary and cultural history from the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries. Our readings will also concentrate on recent scholarship on the material and cultural placements of various media forms—news writings, self-help manuals, ethnic autobiography, popular entertainments, speeches, pulp magazines, and so forth, adjacent to (and often constituting) mainstream literary expression.
Instructor(s): Christopher Wilson
