This is a survey class introducing students to the principal movements and schools of literary and critical theory. Topics covered include Formalism, Structuralism, Psychoanalytic Criticism, Marxism, New Historicism, Feminism and Gender Studies, Queer Theory, Postcolonial Theory, and Ecocriticism. This course is designed to expose students to the main terms and issues of twentieth- and twenty-first-century literary and cultural theory. Each session is split between an introductory lecture and a group discussion.


Two take-home written assignments in the form of multiple essay questions.


The textbook for Critical Approaches is Vincent B. Leitch et al, The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism. 3rd Edition. 2017. ISBN: 9780393602951 All course readings will be drawn from this text and you will need to acquire a copy.
