ENGL 096. Methods
In this course, we will both investigate and apply some of the methodologies that have shaped the study of English literature over the last half century. We will, for example, practice close reading while investigating the rationales of New Criticism; we will think about the possibilities and limitations of historicism through (and after) the so-called New Historicism. The course concludes with attention to current and nascent methodologies in our academic discipline.
