ENGL 466 Spring 2013 Re-reading Joyce's Ulysses

If you have taken English 360, you know how truly awesome James Joyce's Ulysses is and have a sense that it not only rewards but demands reconsideration. This advanced course is an opportunity to more fully master a masterpiece, and to pursue your own critical and theoretical analysis. For the first half of spring semester, we meet as a small band of zealous disciples, discussing the complexities of Ulysses. For the second half of the term, students meet independently with the instructor to plan, pursue, refine, and revise a substantial essay of about twenty pages. Your research and writing might be literary critical (close reading, formal analysis, exploration of verbal details), interdisciplinary, biographical and historical, political and ideological, feminist and gender-inflected, cultural studies, post-colonial, psychological and sociological, among many possibilities. The idea is to learn better how to develop a compelling interpretive analysis, as one might in a senior honors project or graduate school seminar paper.
