230213 Literary Theory (S) (WiSe 2017/2018)

Inhalt, Kommentar

In this course we will engage with a broad spectrum of literary theory and criticism. Lois Tyson's Critical Theory Today: A User-Friendly Guide (2014) will function as major textbook to introduce students to reader-response, structuralist, deconstructivist and new historical criticism. We will apply different theoretical approaches to the reading of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (1925) as our major literary text.

Learning Objectives:
1. To understand the basic theoretical concepts and approaches to literature and culture, and the major differences between them;
2. To understand the aims of literary and cultural criticism; gain knowledge of key forms and terminology of literary and cultural criticism;
3. Ability to generate and articulate responses to literary and critical texts in class discussions, and to explain the premises and assumptions underlying such responses;
4. Ability to plan and execute the facilitation of a class session, i.e. the integration of literary and cultural theory with a pedagogical vision which is aimed at facilitating the learning of theory and its application for fellow students.
