ENGL 238 - Contemporary American Fiction

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
This course selectively surveys contemporary American fiction. Thematic connections include the role of memory and the past in defining current literary practice. We’ll also focus on the nature of interpretation and its role in consolidating its object of study. The reading list is diverse in a number of ways - stylistic, generic and cultural - but always includes some very recently published work. Recent authors have included Beatty, Erdrich, Ozeki, Moshfegh, Ngyuen, Pollack, Whitehead and others.
Prerequisites & Notes: For complete prerequisites, please refer to the English Program section titled “200 level Courses.”
