ENG 644: Literature: Theory and Pedagogy in Higher Ed.

ENG 644 reviews a variety of theoretical approaches to the study of literary texts – theories that may include but are not limited to a New Critical-like focus on literary form, Structuralism, Post-Structuralism, Psychoanalysis, Marxism, Feminism, New Historicism, Culture Studies, Queer Theory, Post-Colonialism, Disability Studies, and Ecocriticism.

Akin to a professional seminar, the focus of the course is on the college-level reading and teaching of literature. Course readings and conversations foreground the importance of theoretical perspectives and the development of critical reading, thinking, and writing skills that are appropriate to the study of literature in dual-credit and university classrooms.

Please note that this is a synchronous course. Please review the syllabus for full course information.

This is a Full Semester course. Participants may register for one Full Semester course OR one course each in Summer I and Summer II.
