LIT 169 - Literature as Popular Culture

4 Credit(s)
This course examines ways in which particular literary texts capture and reflect defining characteristics of popular culture at a given time. In some cases, such texts may themselves be best sellers rather than works regarded over time as literary masterworks. The divergence between best sellers and literary masterworks invites analysis of the whole notion of literary reception. A variety of teaching and learning practices are included in this course: e.g., traditional lecture, oral readings, group discussions, creative and/or analytical writing, listening activities, oral and/or dramatic presentations, visits with authors, interviews, internet and off-campus activities, research practice, etc.
