EN 203 - HUM American Literature and Culture II: 1866 – Present Day

4.00 credits.
(Humanities Core Course)
*A Guided Writing and Research Course.
This course is the second of our two-part American Literature and Culture Survey Sequence. It encompasses seminal texts from the literary and cultural movements that developed after the Civil War—movements traditionally known as Romantic, Realist, Modern, and Contemporary. By studying the works’ literary devices, themes, genres, structures, and contexts, students will develop their broad and close reading skills, and they will also expand their knowledge about the literatures and cultures of the United States. (The texts and themes explored in the course are shaped by the instructor’s specializations and interests: for details about materials covered during a particular semester, see the English Department’s website.) *Prerequisite(s): EN 100  or EN 150 . Spring semester. *Students in the English Literature Concentration should take this course during the spring of their First Year.
