Junior Honors Seminar:James Joyce

ENGL 309.301
instructor(s):
TR 12-1:30

The purpose of this course is to focus on a single text (in this case James Joyce's *Ulysses*), bringing to bear on it a variety of different literary and theoretical perspectives. Specifically, we will explore the book from a biographical perspective, an Irish historical-nationalist perspective, a loosely deconstructist perspective, and a perspective that is shaped by feminism and gender studies. Requirements include an oral presentation accompanied by a one-page paper (to be distributed), and a 25-page final paper, which will be written in stages. Students will be asked to read and evaluate each other's drafts.
