Literature & Society 4 credits
Students will explore a variety of literary works from various time periods, concentrating on literature’s use as both a reflection of its society and as a catalyst for social change. In looking into these works, students will consider their significance both to the time in which they were written, and to the world today. The ultimate goal of this course is to instill a greater understanding and appreciation of the intimate relationship between a particular society and its literature. Specific course content is chosen by the instructor. Prerequisite: Successful completion of En102 or En150 or approval of Division Chair.
