Histories of English Language and Literature

These courses concentrate on exploring the historical contexts of the development of English language and literature. Courses may include a range of approaches, including literary history as well as cultural studies. At times, courses may also take up a discussion of genre or theory, but historical context remains pivotal. The goal of these courses is to introduce the ways in which literature responds to and/or shapes historical conditions.
