The Contemporary Novel (grad seminar)





This course is a hybrid. Half of the weeks will proceed as an ordinary graduate seminar, in which we will read recent novels and discuss current critical questions, among them contemporary literary movements, the institutions of the contemporary novel, the transnational and the national, and the surprising return of the comic book. The other weeks will function as a writing workshop, in which you will plan, research, draft, and revise a long review essay on a subject of your own choosing
