English Program American Literature Group

This group is a space for faculty and students in the PhD Program in English to discuss matters like faculty appointments and curriculum.


AY2015-16 courses

  • Hi all —

    Here’s a space for us to start gathering/discussing ideas for courses for the coming academic year.

    For your reference, I’ve uploaded the “New Curriculum” document that Mario circulated under the Files tab for this group. Below, I’ve copied/pasted is what is effectively the second half of the course listings on that document, which strike me as rubrics under which Americanist work might fall.

    Perhaps we might start with some broad based imagining and then see if we can produce a sense of common thrulines we would like to see shaping Americanist conversations in the years to go?

    Speaking not as the group convener but just me, I was thinking of offering a course that would allow engagement with the discourses on settler colonialism that are so strongly present in American cultural studies these days. I’m thinking also of a course that might be organized around the problematics of U.S. ethnic literary studies in the post-identity era.

    Okay, so, let’s see if this virtual forum works to sustain discussion — and if not, we’ll figure out other means.

    Thanks, everyone —
