The lecture offers an overview of U.S. American literary history since World War I. It is complemented by a Lektüreseminar or Lektüreübung in which selected texts from the respective periods are discussed in greater depth. The courses are based on the Norton Anthology of American Literature (Shorter 9th Edition), which is an essential text for the study of American literature. Additional texts will be available on moodle.
Credit for the Lektüreseminar / Lektüreübung is based on regular attendance, participation in class discussions, an oral presentation or comparable task, as well as short pop quizzes.
B.A. students in American Studies will be tutored by more advanced students in the Master program (Lektüreübung).
