ENG2201 AmericanLiterature II, Spring 2019

ENG2201 AmericanLiterature II, Spring 2019

This course explores the history and literature of the United States starting from the end of the Civil War till the present day. Students will read a mix of genres and a number of classic tales, focusing not just on aesthetics but on the history embedded in these texts. We will cover a variety of issues relating—but not limited to—religion, class, gender, race, politics, human rights, and the history of publishing and authorship. All told, we will try to come to terms with the ethical, social, and aesthetic problems that our readings raise to both better understand our past and present.

“I went into photography because it seemed like the perfect vehicle for commenting on the madness of today’s existence.” — Robert Mapplethorpe This course surveys the history of photography from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the present. We will examine the use of photography for aesthetic, documentary, and “scientific” purposes, stylistic shifts in photography related to aesthetic concerns, and varying interpretations of subject matter based on social and cultural concerns at specific moments in history. We will also consider the relationship between photography and the visual arts in general, which culminates with the primacy of photography as a medium by the late twentieth century.
