The goal of this 3rd year BA seminar is to introduce you to the genre of war literature. America has been at war constantly since its founding and is currently fighting wars on several fronts. This seminar examines how war is written about and represented, with a particular interest in the literary conventions used to either glamorize or to demystify it. Course material will include texts from the Civil War to the present.
