ENGL 121. Modernism and Forgetting
This course is an advanced research seminar on the literatures, cultures, and theories of modernism. Central questions include: How do aspects of psychic life, such as mourning and trauma, exert pressure on literary form? Why do memory's material traces (the archive, the photograph) enthrall the modernist imagination? What ethical or political values attend literary projects of remembering? Of forgetting? We will situate modernist literary practice alongside psychoanalytic, postcolonial, queer, and feminist critique.
