ENGL 508: Contemporary Literary Theory (3)

Study of selected works of literary theory and of current issues in literary studies. The course is designed for advanced undergraduates who intend to continue their study of literature in graduate school and for new graduate students who require a grounding in literary theory. According to each instructor's interest, the course may survey contemporary literary theory or may focus on a particular topic (e.g., authorship, canon formation, creativity, metaphor, narrative, rhetoric) or on a theoretical position (e.g., cultural studies, deconstruction, feminism, historicism, Marxism, psychoanalysis). A student may repeat the course with the permission of the appropriate director. Prerequisite: Completion of three junior-senior courses in English (or their equivalent) or graduate standing. LEC
