ENG-379 Studies in Fictional Histories


GER: TA (Critical, Analytical Interpretation of Texts)
Prerequisite: any first year writing seminar
How does literature shape the ways in which one imagines historical figures, national events, or remote geographies? How do partially fictionalized reconstructions of experience influence historical understanding? This course theorizes the often porous borders between history and fiction. Students will examine archival material, historical documents, and theoretical studies alongside fictional works that do not simply reimagine the past but profoundly recast national histories. 4 credits.
