EN 272 — Identity in America: History and Literature, 1865 to Present

3 credits; 3 lecture hours

Students read and interpret literary texts in order to understand the evolution of America's self-images since the Civil War. They explore the cultural context of particular works and how identity manifests itself in literature. Themes examined include regional and ethnic diversity between 1865 and World War I; modernism and expatriation in a context of alienation, loss of faith, and new scientific questions between 1918 and World War II; the civil rights and women's movements through 1980; and multiculturalism, postmodernism, and the implications of technological development and globalization in the last 20 years.
