Fall Quarter (F18)
|Dept/Description||Course No., Title||Instructor|
|ENGLISH (F18)||100 INTRODUCTION TO LITERARY THEORY||BARTLETT, J.|
|Emphasis/Category: British Studies, French Studies, Italian Studies, Modern Europe (1798-)|
English 100 has been designed to provide you with a survey of literary theory and criticism from the fifth century B.C.E. to the present day, an ambition that would read like an incredible prank if it were it not so sincerely earned. The University of California, Irvine has a reputation for bleeding-edge approaches to literature and culture that is, frankly, unmatched: ours was the first university in the country to offer a doctoral program in Critical Theory, now an essential component of literary study, and our library houses the most comprehensive Critical Theory Archive in the world, as well as the manuscripts and papers of many of the field’s most significant thinkers. Irvine’s influence on humanistic inquiry is both historic and ongoing, and this course—English 100—represents everything that we are about.
|ITALIAN (F18)||150 HOLOCAUST IN ITALY||CHIAMPI, J.|
|Emphasis/Category: Italian Studies, Modern Europe (1798-)|
This course will concern itself with the response to the Holocaust in the memoirs of Primo Levi and Liana Millu, and in the fiction of Giorgio Bassani. Framing their writings will be brief readings in the work of historians Liliana Picciotto Fargion, Michele Sarfatti and Susan Zuccotti.
