Stein and Woolf
ENGL 309
Spring 2016 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 311

This course is an intensive consideration of these two writers. What are the relations among their formal experimentations, their attempts to rethink the self (a concept that they variously termed "identity," "human nature," "character," "consciousness," etc.), and their reimagining of the social (a sphere they called "reality," "geography," "history," etc.). How does each represent the concepts and the lived experiences of genre and of gender, of work and of consumption, of temporality and of technology, of urban and textual spaces, of racial and national identities? How does each theorize her own literary production, including its relationships to history and to modernity?
