American Literature: Mid-1800s to the Present

This course examines various literary genres and oral histories that narrate the complex social transformations of the 19th century to the present within local and globalized contexts. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this survey course seeks to expose students to a wide range of U.S. authors that examine the paradox between ideas of nationhood and a sense of belonging. Students learn to make distinctions between the wide range of literary and intellectual movements that influenced localized forms of storytelling, popular fiction, performance texts, and other cultural productions. UC CREDIT LIMITATION: Credit for LIT 251 or LIT 251H. C-ID ENGL-135.
