Liberal Education Core
In this course students approach such questions as “What is literature?” “How do literary texts relate to each other?” and “How does literature relate to ordinary life?” Students learn critical vocabulary and perform close readings in a variety of literary genres. Students focus on the conventions pertinent to different literary forms as well as the way in which social and cultural concerns impact theory formation. Students will be expected to complete an in-depth research project on a body of imaginative literature defined by culture, genre or theme.
