Expanded Course Description
Genre courses focus on a range of genres/forms crucial for the study of English and American literature and culture and are aimed primarily at English majors. Each Genre course traces the historical development and transformation of a key literary and cultural genre and places strong emphasis on close reading and critical analytic skills. Genre courses are NOT intended to present comprehensive historical coverage of English, American or Anglophone authors or texts, though each course does situate particular examples of a given genre within appropriate cultural and historical contexts. Romance Topic: Although in popular speech "romance" connotes idealized notions of love, the genre of romance is about more than the transcendent power of romantic love. As a genre (an expressive form with recognizable and elastic conventions) and a narrative mode (a specific way of structuring and telling stories with the primary goal of exploring and resolving social contradictions into a coherent, emergent moral order) romance interrogates tensions ranging from class conflict and anxieties over religious, racial, and national identity to the dissolution of social institutions, normative authority, and society itself. Understood in these terms, romance permeates everything from "serious" literature and "high" culture to Harlequin romances and pulp detective fictions, and finds expression in a variety of forms ranging from epic poems, Renaissance dramas, and Gothic short stories to fantasy novels, superhero comics, television series, and blockbuster films.
