Technologies of Reading and Writing: The Nineteenth Century Vs. The Digital Age
The Nineteenth Century was a critical period for technological development that accelerated forms of communication. As the telegraph replaced the letter, daily gossip columns replaced word of mouth, and photographs replaced the painted illustration, theories of writing and reading changed dramatically. Through texts such as Keats's Letters, Shelley's Frankenstein, Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and Stoker's Dracula, this course explores the effects of media on the creation, dissemination and reception of literature. This course will also facilitate comparative work by juxtaposing nineteenth-century media with our own contemporary technologies of writing and reading, for example emails, blogs, wikis, etc. and the impact of these technologies on the creation, dissemination and reception of literature today.
The Human Love of Mystery: A Journey through Detective Fiction
Reading and discussion of mystery and detective fiction from Sherlock Holmes through the Golden Age of Agatha Christie, to the "hard-boiled private eye" in Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer novels. Topics include the independent female private eye and social changes that allowed her emergence; the definition of mystery and detective fiction to include Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, Morrison Song of Solomon, and Freud's theories; the enduring hold this genre has on imaginations; the fundamental concerns with justice and fear; and stimulation of the deep human fascination with the apparently inexplicable and the intellectual satisfaction of arriving at understanding.
