ENGL 103 LEC 800: Case Studies in Research: Comparative Globalisms: Popular Genres Across the Centuries

S. Sucur

This course emphasizes the global and cross-cultural nature of literature, with focus placed on the international dissemination of ideas via selected texts ranging from satire of the late 17th century to cinema of the 1960s. Movements in thought such as the Enlightenment, Romanticism, etc., will also be given an important role in the global and comparative discussions that will form the basis of this class. The research process is foundational to this course, and students can expect an in-depth and focused approach to content and a multi-stage introduction to this process.
