Literatures of the City

How does the city change the ways that writers write and readers read? Focusing on the city as both physical and imaginary space, students examine the dynamic ways in which authors have given shape to the experience of city life in different historical periods and across various genres. Topics may include: architecture and space; city and nation; the individual and the community; anonymity and the crowd; cosmopolitanism; and intersections of race, gender, class, and power.
