ENGL 337 - Perspectives on Genre (3 credits)


(Prereq: ENGL 101  and ENGL 102  with a grade of ‘C’ or better) This course develops students’ knowledge of a particular genre through the study of a variety of literary and/or cultural texts that share (generic) features of form, style, and/or purpose. We analyze the texts as well as the genre in light of their engagement with the aesthetic, cultural, material, and historical contexts within which they are embedded and/or that they adapt and appropriate. While attending to the similarities among generically connected texts, we also study the critical nuances of their differences that enrich our understanding of the genre. F, S.
