Course Description

ENG 280C
ST: Ghosts in the Machine

This seminar examines the ecological, political, and emotional imagination and rhetoric of fiction between 1818 and 1913. Our readings will focus on Gothic fictions, Victorian sensation novels, and alternative histories of the period which often denaturalize the progress of technology, the organization of labor, and normative notions of gender and race. These fictions are haunted by new notions of deep time, industrial labor, conceptions of self, gender, the limits and possibilities of the human, the corporal, the known.
