ENGL 315 - The Eighteenth-Century British Novel and Print Culture

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
This course examines eighteenth-century “novels” from two main vantage points: 1. as literary texts – works of fiction with distinctive formal properties; 2. as products of print culture – objects that were made, sold, distributed, and read. Six of our meetings will be “labs” held in Mudd Special Collections. In these labs we will use eighteenth-century editions and other print culture artifacts to study: the physical production of books, the rise of the author, the growth of a reading public, books as commodities, and the cultural roles of booksellers, printers, and publishers. British, 1700-1900.
