Description:
The objective of the course is to introduce students to the historical development of dominant literary genres in the long nineteenth century, to their characteristics and conventions. The literary production of this period is examined within its broader cultural and socio-historical context, so that students can also develop their awareness of the influence of such environment on literary trends, the development and kinds of literary audiences, and on the formation of the canon. Students develop their research skills, especially the use of electronic and printed resources, and they develop their reading skills and academic writing.
