Course Description:

In this course we will examine major themes in the political consciousness of twentieth-century American society, as those themes are reflected in contemporary fiction. The focus will be on both particular events and movements (Progressive reform, the Cold War, women’s liberation, civil rights, terrorism) and on more generalized and persistent concerns (alienation and depersonalization, discrimination, authoritarianism, violence, sexuality, bureaucratization, conformity, resistance, corruption). During the term, each student will read ten or eleven novels, will write four short papers, and will lead a class discussion. Class sessions will place a decided emphasis on discussion–some led by the professor and others by students in the class.
