English 90lw. Literature and War

Instructor: John Stauffer
Terms: Spring Term

Tuesdays, 2-4 pm | Location: Barker 024

Enrollment: Limited to 15 students.

This interdisciplinary course explores how war has been represented from antiquity to the present, with particular focus on the 19th century to yesterday.  We explore how the literature of war shaped armed conflict and memories of it, and how war affected forms of representation.  Readings range from “classic” literature to photography, print and broadcast journalism, cinema, and music.
