About the course:
This course offers forceful strategies for exploring US literary culture between the Second World War to the present. Through selected readings of both canonical and less-known texts, it focuses on such crucial issues as the rise and waning of postmodernism, the program era, the Cold War, neoliberalism and finance, the culture of the Anthropocene, the literature of social movements, and narratives of the nonhuman turn. Along the way we will also discover how new methodologies, periodisations, and thematics have redefined the study of contemporary literature.
