ENG 282 Introduction to Critical Theory

Credits: (3)
The goal of this course is to introduce students to several schools of critical theory widely used in literary analysis, including deconstruction, post-colonialism, feminism, Marxism, semiotics, and psychoanalysis. By the end of this course, students will be familiar with the major arguments and questions of the schools studied. This coverage will include where ideas intersect across schools, key debates at the heart of critical analysis, and practical applications. Most usefully, students will complete the course by performing analytical tasks in at least two critical schools. Prerequisite(s): ENG 103  and ENG 104 .
