Area of Expertise:

Comparative Literature, Poetry and Poetics, Modernity and Modernism, Secular Criticism, Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies,

 Political Theory, Marxism, and Critical Social Theory, Psychoanalysis and Cognitive Studies

 

Sample Topics:

Law and Justice in the Greek World

The course will serve as a survey of key texts that reveal how the ancient Greeks conceptualized, debated, and engaged the questions of law and justice – questions that are fundamental for every community and every society in human history. The course is brief, so the focus will be on key signposts in what is otherwise a complex and heterogeneous history. Starting indeed with the question of history, of self-narration and account of others (Herodotus and Thucydi- des), we will then engage with the two most important Sophoclean tragedies: Oedipus Rex and Antigone. We will examine in detail in what sense tragedy is the primary form through which questions of law and justice were considered by the population as a whole and discuss the theatrical dimensions of determining justice in court even today. We will close with two key philosophical texts by Plato and Aristotle that demonstrate how questions of justice are directly relevant to

questions of governing and being governed, which is the pillar of democratic think- ing. In the process, we will additionally examine and discuss how the Greeks understood the relation between the human and the divine realm.

 

Prospects for a Comparative Poetics

What are the prospects for comparative work with poetry and poetics beyond genre? Is there a role for formalism without historicism? Is it possible or desirable to dispense with ethical and political dynamics? We will read a series of theoretical interventions and histories of literary criticism, we will talk about developing our own tools, and we will experiment with them on poetry from all kinds of contexts.


Literary Modernism and Literary Modernity

This course is a US-focused case study in modernism in the context of the broader transfor- mation of print and literacy in the first half of the twentieth century. For a long time an Ameri- can-dominated modernism was thought to cover nearly everything of interest in (early) twen- tieth-century literature, but scholarship has increasingly acknowledged the limitations of this approach, which ignores or devalues a wide range of literary production that does not resemble classic modernism. In order to grasp the effects of the structural transformations that affected reading and writing broadly in the period, this course proposes that modernism and its many non-modernist others are best studied as joint products of an expanding, fragmenting, and polarizing literary field. To give our inquiry some heuristic limits, we accept a US national frame, bearing in mind as we read individual writers that really, universally, literary relations stop no- where. The course is divided into two parts. The first half of the course gives a selective overview of American modernism up to 1940. The second half of the course is a series of rapid intro- ductions to a few key US literary tendencies contemporary with but distinct from modernism: the Harlem Renaissance, proletarian literature, and several genres of commercial fiction. Need- less to say we cannot cover the field in its totality, but our goal is to articulate some of the themes, transformations, and interpretive problems that an expansive literary history of the twentieth century encounters. Readings include both primary texts and scholarship throughout the semester.

The primary texts are to be studied with particular attention to the era’s distinctive print media (little magazines,

pulps and slicks, experimental anthologies, and so on).The selec- tion of secondary readings gives rather short shrift to classic modernist scholarship in order to emphasize more recent approaches to the broader field
