  • Shakespeare (ENGL 0310A)

    Interested students must register for ENGL 0310A (CRN 24657).
  • Banned Books

    An examination of literary censorship in which we read various texts forbidden for putatively violating social, religious, and political norms in particular historical and cultural contexts. We also analyze the secondary literature surrounding the banning of these ostensibly "dangerous" texts in order to theorize questions and assumptions about the power of art and the ironies generated by these debates.

  • Before Wikipedia

    How did humans organize knowledge before Wikipedia? This course explores the fascinating history of encyclopedic texts, archives, and databases in various cultural contexts. We consider issues of book history, the classification of knowledge, and the obsession to collect, compile, and document everything knowable and unknowable in both real and fictional encyclopedias. The use of Wikipedia in this course is not only tolerated but required. Students will be responsible for originating, composing, and curating new Wikipedia entries over the course of the semester.

  • Fan Fiction

    What is imitation (sincerest form of flattery) to literary canons? Vergil’s Aeneid appropriated Aeneas from the Iliad, Joyce’s Ulysses modernized Odysseus. Admiration as a source of inspiration is a major force in the evolution of fiction. ”Fan Fiction” explores intriguing characters in greater detail and new contexts, allowing them new lives in contemporary imagination. This course presents pairs of works that are explicitly linked by the intimate relation of imitation. Classic readings will be paired with their mostly contemporary updates, including Pride and Prejudice/Murder at Pemberley, Vilette/The Thirteenth Tale, Heart of Darkness/State of Wonder, Kim/The Game, and Monkey/Tripmaster Monkey.

  • After The War: Arendt, Duras and Anonymous from Berlin

    Three women, a political theorist, a novelist and an anonymous author question WWII. They record and question war's experiences and memories, its unfolding and its end, its continuation and after effects. They are interested in what was left of public life, intimacy, friendship, womanhood, survival, liberation and invent forms of promises and forgiveness. We will read Duras' memoir on the war and her screenplay for Hiroshima mon amour, Arendt's Origins of Totalitarianism, Eichmann in Jerusalem and her critique of zionism, and the dairy of a forsaken German woman in post war Berlin, a devastated city under Soviet occupation.

  • Confession, Autobiography, Testimony

    Does writing a life give it coherence and veracity, or create a fiction? What is the relationship between first-person narrative and truth, and between authorship and authority? How does the form of a first-person text -- a religious confession, a personal journal, a political denunciation, a collective memoir -- affect the telling? Must the reader of such an account be "you" to the teller's "I", and how does the intimacy of this relationship shape the experience of reading? In this course, we test the limits of self-narration against ethical and physical limits, reading first-person narratives that purport to be non-fictional. We will read accounts of different experiences -- social and sexual transgression, suffering and perpetrating violence, slavery -- and explore both the possibilities and duplicities of writing as "I".

  • The Myth of Venice in Literature: Memory, Desire and Death

    This course will explore the myth of Venice in literature: focusing on the topos of Venice in the genre of travel writing, we will study the theme of liberty and decadence associated with Venice’s theatrical and political culture. Readings will include Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, excerpts from De Brosses’s Travels through Italy, Goldoni’s Memoirs, Rousseau’s Confessions, and Casanova’s Histoire de ma vie. We will also study the influence of these accounts on the Romantic poets (Goethe, Wordsworth, Byron, Shelley, and Musset), and modernity (Henry James’s The Aspern Papers, Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice, Donna Leone’s Death at the Fenice).

  • Paradise, Periphery, Prison?: The Island in the Western Imaginary

    Paradise, periphery, or prison? The representation of the island has been described as imaginary and not actual, mythological and not geographical. Examines the fascination with islands in the western cultural imaginary. Selective readings from literature, film and historical texts focus on the ways in which island spaces have been represented in diverse social, national, imperial contexts as well as the effect of such projections on the native islanders, their visitors and often subjugators. Authors may include Homer, Plato, Marco Polo, Mandeville, Darwin, Defoe, Tournier, Kincaid, Kafka, Durrell, Seferis; theoretical works drawn from critical geography, postcolonialism, and the field of island studies.

  • Silk Road Fictions

    Today the Silk Road is a metaphor of premodern East-West exchange. Through a range of literary texts and cultural sites that are now associated with the Silk Road we will explore problems in cross-cultural comparative reading, translation, and concepts of cosmopolitanism. What is gained or lost when we read classical Chinese, Greek, or English texts outside national literatures or modern Area Studies frameworks?

  • Shakespeare and Money

    In an attempt to practice the art of what Nietzsche once called "slow reading," the course is dedicated to reading The Merchant of Venice with patience and attention. We will attempt a reading that is both conceptually acute and responsive to literary form. Our detailed examination of the play will also be wedded to particular thematic concerns that emerge from the work, including problems of money, violence, and the nature of human obligation.

  • Modernisms North and South: James Joyce and Roberto Bolaño

    James Joyce's Ulysses (1922) and Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives (1998) are weighty, influential, often intimidating works that bookend literary production in the twentieth century. Both are also moving narratives about humans with different sorts of artistic, emotional, and bodily ambitions, grappling with new forms of subjective and collective life in modernity, trying to work out their own place within social, political and artistic systems. Join Stephen Dedalus, Leopold and Molly Bloom, Ulises Lima and a cast of minor characters as they make their way through the hearts, minds, memories, and nervous systems of a range of modern metropoles.

  • Fiction and the Technology of Deception

    A major preoccupation of fiction in the last century, especially American fiction, is the figure of the con-man, forger, counterfeiter, or impostor. After reading Melville’s Confidence-Man, we will turn to several monuments of American modern and post-modern fiction, Gaddis’ Recognitions, Nabokov's Lolita, and Gass’ Middle C. We will consider these works in relation to twentieth-century technologies and pseudo-technologies that were invented to perform or expose deception (such as the lie-detector, the identification of sociopaths, the Turing test, corporate advertising, spin, catfishing), and also in conjunction with long-standing theoretical discussions of authenticity, simulacra, and self-deception.

  • Leaves of Words: Japanese Poetry and Poetics

    A historical study of various poetic forms of Japanese poetry (waka) from the 8th-century anthology, the Man'yoshu, to the advent of modern verse, including jiyushi or free verse, in the latter part of the 19th century into the 20th century. Focusses on the relationship of poetry to society, religion, the political implications of waka, and the dominant aesthetic modes governing poetic conventions in different periods.

  • What is Reading?

    The answers to this question will be read—deciphered—in the many “reading scenes” found throughout the history of literature or philosophy. In Plato’s Phaedrus, reading thus appears caught in a network of desire and power: the dominant role—the erases (“lover”) who writes and teaches—and the passive or submissive position—the eromenos (“beloved”) who reads and learns—are constantly permutated and destabilized. Hobbes’ Leviathan, Melville’s Moby Dick and Billy Budd, Goethe’s and Valéry’s Faust will lead us to question what we do when we read and reflect upon what could be called a politics of reading.

  • Literary Translation

    The study of translation draws from many fields including linguistics, comparative literature, anthropology, cognitive science, and literary studies. While we consider theories of translation and particular works, students embark on a semester-length translation project that includes writing a critical introduction. Translation exercises from various languages, oral presentations, discussions of readings, and a midterm draft of a critical essay are requisite stations along the path to the manuscript in translation. Enrollment limited to 15.

  • Literatures of Immigration

    Why do people migrate? How do literary genres, including poetry, fiction, autobiography and memoir, characterize immigrant experiences? How is the experience of "coming from somewhere else" similar and different for each subsequent generation of immigrants? How does literature indicate the impacts of migration on the culture, politics and economics of the countries of immigration and emigration? How do literatures of immigration imagine the past, present and future of networks and communities of immigrants? Focusing on twentieth-century literary texts and the socio-historical context of mass migration, the first half of the course examines immigration literature in the U.S., the second half of the course explores literatures of immigration beyond the U.S., and the course concludes with an inquiry into immigration in our presently globalizing age.

We will begin with Erich Auerbach's foundational text Mimesis, and end with Gayatri Spivak's Death of a Discipline. In between the authors to be read and analyzed will be Bakhtin, Lukacs, Barthes, Derrida, DeMan, Jameson, Greenblatt and others. Open to graduate students, and to undergraduates by permission of the instructor.

  • Economies of the Visual (The Reverse of Images)

    In The Time-Image, Deleuze wrote: “Money is the reverse of all the images that the cinema shows and edits on the obverse, so that films about money are already, if implicitly, films within the film or about the film.” What are the implications of this sentence for the economy of images (what Susan Buck-Morss terms their iconomy)? From The Big Store (Marx Brothers) to Peter Jackson’s King Kong, we will trace various mobilizations of the gaze, leading from the proto-cinematographic elevators and escalators to the actual developments of eye-tracking technologies, allowing for an increasing commodification of the gaze itself.
