Ulysses (w/ Engl 442 & C. Lit 410)
James Joyce’s Ulysses
This course, designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, will be devoted to an intensive reading of Joyce’s Ulysses. The primary goal is simply to get a handle on Joyce’s sprawling modernist novel, but we’ll also survey some recent critical approaches to the text. Coursework will include weekly quizzes, a group project and presentation on one specific critical approach, and an 8-10 page final paper. Previous Joyce experience useful, but not required; doing an initial reading of the first few chapters prior to the first class is strongly encouraged.
