Expanded Course Description
English 305 orients students to the intellectual rationale behind the English major by presenting the discipline’s history and debates. We will do this by studying “critical theory,” a form of writing that seeks less to interpret the meaning of cultural objects than to interrogate the historical, social, and ideological forces that underwrite the ways in which meaning is made. Class lectures and discussions will be guided by three goals. First, we will develop strategies for reading and understanding critical theory as a distinct form of writing. Second, we will consider the contexts from which key theory debates have emerged. Third, we will focus on how theory expands, constricts, or complicates our analysis of specific texts.
