ENGL 009J. First-Year Seminar: Revolution and Revolt

What makes a revolution? This course investigates the literature of rebellion from the late 18th century's "Age of Revolution" to the George Floyd rebellions. We will read the works of not only famous revolutionary leaders, but also infamous and obscure ones, including radical abolitionists, communists, anarchists, feminists, student activists, and more, asking how their writing interprets the memory of previous revolutions and imagines possibilities beyond them.
