ENGL 330 - Modernist Chicago: Urban Literature and Sociology

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This course focuses on literature associated with the social, literary, and academic scene of Chicago from 1900 to 1959. Reading multi-ethnic articulations of patterns of identity and lifestyle emerging due to rapid industrialization, migration, and class differentiation, we will consider both social and formal features of this strain of modernism (in works by Dreiser, Anderson, Farrell, Wright, Himes, and Hansberry, among others); we will also examine select sociological studies and reflections on Chicago’s intellectual culture. American, Diversity, Post-1900.
