Welcome to the ride through the most diverse and wonderful literary and artistic era! Departing from the wildest experimentations with language and form of the historical avant-gardes from the beginning of the century, our journey takes us through the post-WWII disillusionment of Theatre of the Absurd, all the way to postmodern fragmentation of text and image. Besides some of the most important names of the European and American literature and art, look for the many unexpected texts from the world’s “cultural peripheries,” intended to give a rounded idea of how Western ideas in literature and art were disseminated to other parts of the globe. This is a truly comparative course that will expose students to a variety of genres and forms of expression and also develop their skills in writing. Course materials include textual and visual materials. We will spend some time in the reconstructed UM museum learning about the arts of the century.

Requirements: regular class participation and reading, 4 written assignments and peer review workshops.
