ENG 340 - Introduction to Graduate Study in English


Since many forms of literary theories proliferate, Prof. Levin strongly recommends that M.A. candidates take a course in literary theory to complement this course. Introduction to Graduate Studies will examine theories and methodologies pertinent to the study of literature by way of a focus on a special topic.  For fall 2017, the special topic will be `Twenty-First Century Literature’.  What is the role of the humanities in the present moment? How does literature respond to pressing issues such as global inequality and climate change?  What forms does literature take in the contemporary era? M.A. candidates not specifically exempted are required to take this course.
