The Literature of Business, and Vice Versa (FYS)
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

This course will consider some of the ways that business, markets, and commercial enterprise have been depicted in American fiction from the 19th century to the current moment. Our focus will be on the ways that writers sought, at various stages in history, to understand the changing features of capitalism. At the same time, we will consider the development of the American publishing industry and the ways that it influenced literary production and literary values.
