Expanded Course Description
ENG 302 is one in a three-course series that offers students beginning the English major and those seriously considering it an introduction to the discipline of English as it is practiced at the University of Oregon. Team-taught by three professors in a lecture/discussion format, the ENG 301-2-3 series provides a common intellectual experience for majors and a foundation for future studies in English, American, and Anglophone literatures, media, and folklore. ENG 302 is designed to orient students to the intellectual rationale behind the English major by presenting the discipline’s history and debates including various modes and approaches to textual analysis. Organized around three central texts relating to key topics, which students read in conjunction with critical essays, ENG 302 aims to introduce them to the major methodologies and theories that have informed the genre of literary criticism from its origins up to the present day. Theories covered in the course include philological, biographical, close/textual, feminist, structural, and post-structural approaches as well as methodologies that analyze issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. Writing assignments typically combine two elements: preparing a short synopsis and evaluation of a scholarly article, and then applying an analytical methodology studied in the course to an interpretation of one of the course’s poetic, fictional, or filmic texts.
