Forms of Reading in the Wake of the Humanities

ENGL 2900U S01 [CRN: 24455]

The question "what is it to read"? is endemic to literary and cultural studies. As the "crisis in the humanities" intensifies, humanistic theories of reading confront challenges from new accounts of reading derived from digital culture, cognitive models and evolutionary accounts of interpretation, and data driven approaches to cultural critique. This course examines these new theories of "reading" and their accounts of the traditions of the humanities and the category of the human itself. Enrollment limited to 15 graduate students.
