Course description
  19TH CENTURY ENGLISH LITERATURE

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

This undergraduate survey course is intended to function as a broad overview of the 19th Century. The aim is to construct a general picture of this century and then to interrogate the boundaries of this period (cultural, literary, social and historical). We will read a wide amount of critical, scientific and literary production in order to rethink the epistemic breaks between the Romantic, the Victorian and the Modern.
