Seminar in Literature and Culture is a rotating topics course that examines how literary texts shape and are shaped by and help to define the cultural contexts in which they are embedded. Each section of the course explores how literature interfaces with sociopolitical power and change. Topics might include the role of literature in violent civil rights rebellion, black experiences of World War II, the literature of the Vietnam War, and other topics that highlight the interconnections among literary works and the cultures in which those works are produced and consumed.
