MA in Literature
Course Description

ENG 280M
Reconfiguring Narrative

The course introduces students to some of the techniques and ideas central to postmodern fiction.One portion of the course focuses on the authors’ use and (ab)use of literary conventions, how these approaches differ from one another and why those differences matter, and in the other portion, students investigate these matters of form by attempting to use them, thus deepening their own understanding of the inner logics of fiction. Students will engage with these novels and essays and produce creative and critical offerings.
