ENG 270 Intro to Methods in English

An introduction to the methods of literary and cultural study. Alongside some primary works of literature, ENG 270 involves substantial reading of literary criticism; introduction to several theoretical and methodological approaches to literary study (for examples, New Criticism, feminist criticism, gender and Queer Theory, Critical Race Theory, Marxist and political criticism, psychoanalytic criticism, poststructuralism and Deconstruction, New Historicism); and instruction in writing about literature, including MLA style and documentation. ENG 270 is required for all English majors and should be taken as early as possible as a foundation for subsequent ENG courses.
