CC 300 EX: Troubling Signs: Post-Modern Literature and Theory

3 Credits
Professor Buinicki
MWF 12:30-1:20 pm

Cross Listed with ENGL 590 BX and ENGL 490 BX

In “Troubling Signs,” we will enter the post-modern labyrinth of non-linear narratives, unstable signifiers, and unreliable narrators.  Readings will include essays by theorists like Jacques Derrida, Fredric Jameson, and Jean Fran├žois Lyotard, and literary works by Thomas Pynchon, Vladimir Nabokov, and Toni Morrison, among others.  Students will be required to complete regular readings responses, a mid-term and a final exam, and two formal essays.
