This course addresses topics not confined to a single period in a national literature. Specific course content will vary by semester and instructor. It may emphasize cross-national subjects, literary criticism, the development of a theme or genre over time, new perspectives from social, intellectual, or cultural studies, or non-traditional texts and topics. Each semester’s offerings will be described more specifically in university and department publications before each enrollment period. The courses require junior standing and are repeatable with change of subject matter.
