Insurgent Narratives: Class Warfare and Modern Literature (EAS3250)

30 credits

This module explores the literary history of class warfare from around 1790 through the present. By reading works from a socially diverse yet consistently militant group of writers, you will be encouraged to think about how literature participates in a fight for the material equality of all. Together we will explore the connections between world literature and the interdisciplinary fields of political economy, critical geography, and military strategy. Overall, this module invites you to consider the evolution of class warfare in literature as both revolutionary praxis and aesthetic category.
