New Course: Transatlantic Modernisms

Taught by Prof. Marcela Sulak, the course is predicated on the idea that modernism in the English language is, effectively, a single event occurring nearly simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic. As the course surveys the major English language works from 1890s-1940s, the instructor and students will avail themselves of the major changes in literary methodology that have occurred over the past few decades – the rise of new modes of literary theory, and new sensitivity to issues of social justice and gendered and racial inclusiveness.
