L369 7006 STUDIES IN BRITISH AND AMERICAN AUTHORS
4:00p-5:15p TR (30 students) 3 cr. A&H.
TOPIC: “Jane Austen”
This course provides an in-depth exploration of Jane Austen’s
fiction, with particular attention to its formal features, its
concerns with gender and sexuality, and the ways Austen has been
read over the past 200 years. In addition to the novels themselves,
we will look at contemporary reviews and later criticism, as well as
Austen’s legacy in film. The course will require various short
response papers, some independent research and two longer papers.
There will be a mid-term but no final.
