教育目標

American Literature is a fourth-year required course. This course introduces students to American literature, from colonial times up through the present day, and the historical concerns that mark particular literary epochs. What vision do American writers have of their country, and how do they express their own relationship to it? Students will also consider these issues in a larger sense, so that students not only develop an understanding of American literary history but also how any particular country develops a vision of itself through its literature.
