About the course:
What are the distinctive features of literature as an object of study? What are the characteristics of a literary form, mode, or a particular genre? What are the factors in their emergence and evolution? How do we connect them to political, social, and historical context?
Focusing on one or more instances of a form, mode, or genre, this course explores the formal features and generic conventions of literature in light of recent theoretical debates over the validity and definition of this dimension of literary analysis. In doing so, it also examines some of the classifying systems whereby we map the literary landscape, and interrogate the limits of these organising principles.
