ENGL 3230 Literature and Social Change (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course will examine the possibility of using literature as a force of social change in the twentieth century. We will explore the way in which literary worlds reflect, transform or revise contemporary attitudes towards topics such as racial violence in America, poverty and work, violence against women and domestic abuse. We will examine works that self-consciously assume the task of depicting specific social conditions, but our focus will not be limited to those works.
