Contemporary Literature

Course Code: GLIT 210

Academic Year: 2022-2023

This course introduces students in the third and fourth semester of GAS University Transfer to some of the ways in which leading English-language poets, novelists, short-story writers and playwrights have engaged the questioning spirit of recent times. Course lectures, discussions and seminar presentations focus on influential works written since 1960. The course's three sections allow for consideration of how contemporary literature re-imagines history, genre and identity. This course is only for students in the General Arts & Science University Transfer program.
