ACHTUNG - Beginn: erste Semesterwoche (trotz Beginns der dazugehörigen Vorlesung in der zweiten Woche)!
In this course, which is offered in conjunction with the lecture on American Literary History from the 17th century until World War I, BA students in American Studies will be tutored by more advanced students in the Master program or faculty. Together, you will analyze selected texts from different literary periods or movements, situating the works in their historical contexts and discuss salient themes as well as narrative technique.
The course is based on the Norton Anthology of American Literature, Shorter Edition (7th or 8th edition). Additional texts will be provided electronically.
Credit is based on regular attendance, participation in class discussions, and an oral presentation or a similar task.
